The end of a lovely summers day, at the beach
View of South Beach, The Hague, # 5 2009
oil on canvas
30 x 130 cm
painted on location, Thurs 2/Sat 4 July 2009
Just a great situation for me to paint near the cool waters edge, on these steamy hot summer days. Included in this scene is the entrance to the 2nd inner harbour, the Pier, and lighthouse of Scheveningen. Closer up you have the beach pavillions staring with, La Cantina in the distance, then Zuid, followed by South Beach, next to that, the Life guard hut (reddingsbirgade), then the well known, Catamaran Clubhouse (HDZV), closing off with the colorfull stairs leading to De Fuut. Not an easy painting for me to take a quality picture of, thus I have attached 2 close ups for your viewing pleasure.
