Young family beach outing

oil on canvas,
50 x 80 cm (19.5 x 31.5 inches),
painted on location, sat. 31 march

Hello Everyone,
Here is Saturday's painting,

Here is a typical scene on the beach in Holland around this time of year. Still rather chilly, but the sunshine makes it pleasant. As you can see by the white caps on the water, it was a windy day, perfect for sailing. The subject of this scene is a young families outing, mother and child approaching the father with the family pet dog. I have lined them up, together with the wooden pole, thus forming a diagonal line, cutting thru to horizontal lines created by the waves. It also helps in creating depth.

I appreciate your comments, and like I've stated already, feel free to share these postings with anyone you feel might be interested.

Bye for now,

Alberto, il pittore.
