A vintage washerwoman

A vintage Dutch washerwoman, painted after this preliminary sketch.

Now she is depicted in her backyard, on a cobbled area, with her zinc washing tub and her manual wringing machine, her cans and her ladles. She has been busy, the clothes she has already done are hung on several clotheslines to dry. This is a beautiful, sunny, autumn day, with grass already yellow but trees leaves still green.
