Beach Scene, cloudy sky, Domburg

Beach scene with cloudy sky, Domburg
oil on canvas
70 x 50 cm
painted on location, Sat 3 may 2008


This will be the last posting from my recent trip to Domburg. This portrait format canvas, is rather unusual for a seascape. I did this purposefully so one could get an appreciation for the renowned Dutch light. The swiftly moving clouds are also a dominant feature in this composition. ( Take note of the shadow created by one of them on the sand.) The beach and dunes here are naturally very untamed and beautiful. Check out the gradation of the sand from were it meets the sea to the base of those amazingly high dunes.
