painted on location - Thurs 9 July 2009
Decided to go visit some plein-air friends who are participating on the Katwijk Schildersweek. While their I set myself up on this most extreme windy beach, (thank God I have a parasol of more than 2 meters diameter, which I attached to a pole, thus protecting the painting/easel). As you can see on the last 2 paintings we have been having these wild cloudy skies, which are great to paint, but not really what one wants on a summers day! The water was also fun to paint, with almost everytone of Benelux grey possible. A close up for your viewing pleasure.
