Path in the dunes, Domburg


Path in the dunes, Domburg, Zeeland
oil on canvas
30 x40 cm
painted on location, Fri 2 May 08

SOLD
private collection, Westkapelle, Zeeland

Have not been posting since last week because was on a painting holiday with four other plein - air painters in Domburg, Zeeland. This area of Holland is very well known for its sharp and clear light. The sky is particularly interesting to paint, the clouds seem to float about in a haphazard but yet, rhythmic order. Have not seen this anywhere else but here. The next six postings will all be from this painting excursion. Note the height of these dunes as compared the Westduinpark series.

Wonderful sense of height in this. I love the color and the shadows in the path.

Yes those shadows are very helpfull in giving the illusion of depth.
