Fishing boat and yachts, oil sketch, Scheveningen

A small corner(hoekje) of the, 2e Binnen haven
oil on canvas
18 x 13 cm
painted on location, Thurs 5 March 2009  SOLD

I started off painting on a larger canvas of this view, with overcast skies, thus the lighting was much more subdued. Then about half way through, the sun decided make a friendly appearance, thus I decided to knock off this little guy. They say a painting is never complete, it just stops at an interesting point. It could not be more true as in the case of this little oil sketch. At least that's what I feel.
