Breaking Waves, with surfers, #10/08
The North Sea, Zuiderstrand, The Hague
oil on canvas
30 x 130 cm
painted on location, Monday 6 October 2008
As John Constable once, said "light governs everything in nature". With the sun shining, finally after almost 2 weeks of constant rain, I sure did not miss this oppurtunity to add yet another canvas to the breaking waves series. This one got spiced up a little, with 3 seagulls, two sailboats, and two surfers. The waves were in perfect form for these surf enthusiasts. Besides that they were a delight for me to paint. Again as it is difficult to get a sharp picture, a close up for your viewing.
