Entrance to Scheveningen Harbor, with beautiful Dutch sky

oil on canvas
18 x 24 cm
painted on location, Monday 1 Sept 2008


Not a great day to go sunbathing or for a swim in the North Sea, but for a painter a lovely situation to paint. Only problem is finding a place to set up ones easel. With a wind force that is suitable for the kite surfers and seasoned sailors, it was impossible to keep sand from blowing onto the surface of the art work. Painting clouds is not the easiest thing, but with a lot of practice one gets better at it.
