The burnt pole
Path to the Sea, (near Noordwijk Aan Zee)
oil on canvas
30 x 60 cm
painted on location, Tues. 17 june 2008
private collection, Noordwijk, Holland.
As some of you know, I was a participant of the Noordwijkschildersfestifal, a painters festival held once a year, in Noordwijk, Holland. This is a well known Sea resort here in The Lowlands. I've choosen to blog this piece, as I feel it is most likely, the best work I made, during this week long festival. I made 17 paintings in 5 days, sold all but one. This work has a great sense of depth, the colors blend in harmoniously, and the shadows on the sand are a welcome contrast to the bright light, created by the warm sunlight bathing the whole scene.
