Beach scene with Moon still in view, Kijkduin, Holland
oil on canvas
30 x 160 cm (thus the XL format)
painted on location, Thurs 18 Sept 2008 - SOLD
Well the soft nice weather is continuing here in the Lowlands, and il pittore is taking full advantage of the situation. I was requested by a potential customer to make this XL panoramic format painting of the Northe Sea. Luckily there was very little wind, although a one point the easel did take flight, but I happened to be right in front of it so was able to prevent it from falling on the sand. As in the other panoramic canvases, it is hard to take a clear sharp picture, thus for your viewing purposes, I have taken two close up shots. I was thrilled to see the almost full moon, still in the early morning sky, thus it was with pleasure that I included it. Don't forget that by klicking on the image, you will get a bigger view of it.
