Beach pavilion South, S. Beach, The Hague

Strandpavilijoen Zuid, Den Haag
oil on canvas, 30 x 85 cm
painted on location - Thurs 16 July 2009

Yes folks, it's summer in the city, and this is one of the best places to be. A cool breeze, coming off the salty scented sea, water is fresh and healthy, resaonably warmed up by the suns gratuitous heat. And isn't that what lounging on the beach is all about, heat and comfort? Just like that couple on the forground of this painting, are enjoying each others company and a light dinner (it is 7pm), il pittore, is on location sharing this strech of beach with you, in this virtual manner. I've had this painting on my mind for sometime now, quite often I'm sit up somewhere next to that beach house, painting the views it has to offer. Guess how many people are shown on this painting and I'll give you 10% off the asking price!

This is a beautiful painting.
I love how it stays light there until very late.
