Breaking Waves, The North Sea, #7/08

Soft autumn day on the beach, Kijkduin, Holland
oil on canvas
40 x 120 cm ( a fair size)
painted on location, Wed 17 Sept 2008


Man was I happy to be out there on the beach this morning. Just in time to catch those whispy cloud formations, before that wall of purple/grey clouds came floating in. The light reflecting on the sea was most pleasant to the human eye, flickering flashes of those multiple hues of cool blue. Gentle waves making hardly any effort what so ever to spoil their rythmic flow. A feast for the eye of a plien air painter such as I.
