Breaking Waves, The North Sea, #11/08, XL(repainted)

Footprints in the sand with seashells.
oil on canvas,
50 x 150 cm (anything but small)
painted on location, Thurs 9 and Sat 11 Oct 2008

Private collection, Den Haag

Yes this is the same painting as the last one, in fact, it is the painting I sent out on Friday, however as one can see upon closer observation, a few changes have been made. I completely repainted the sand on the beach, and decided to show the effect of the tide, thus you have a large pile of small seashells, middle forground, the gradation of the sand is also effected by the coming and going of the sea. Summer is behind us now, thus the sand takes on a different appearance. Footprints left behind by the many people taking there beloved dogs for walks, are evident everywhere. There was considerable work done on the sky as well, plus one of the sailboats was removed. If you klick on to my blog, you can see the changes for yourself.
