The Lone Seagull, North Sea
View of North Sea under influence of rain/storm
oil on canvas
30 x 90 cm
painted on location, June 2008
private collection, Noordwijk Aan Zee
This work looks like it could have been painting in this period, as we have been experiencing this kind of weather, but in fact it was made during the Noordwijkschildersfestival, (painting festival), in the beginning of the summer. I was under the cover of a 3m diameter parasol, fastened on to a container, thus protecting me from the strong winds, and the rain which poured down almost consistantly that morning. As some of you may already know, I've been occupied in these last two weeks with the relocating of my studio, hence the low production.
