High winds off the North Sea, The Hague
Wind kracht 5, Zuiderstrand, Den Haag
oil on canvas
24 x 30 cm
painted on location - Fri 4 Sept 2009
Man it feels good to be back on location! Not a nice day to take your kids for a fun afternoon on the beach, but for a plein-air painter, you couldn't ask for better subject matter. It was so windy I had to get as low as possible, in order to paint this spectacular view, a gift from Mother Nature, Herself. The wind blew sand about, everywhere, thus also on the surface of this little canvas.
