Beach Scene # 5, Texel, Holland
Strand gezicht #5, Texel, NL
oil on canvas
50 x 100 cm
painted on location - Sat 10 April 2010
As one can clearly see in this view, the sand is actually raising higher at the horizon line. This is not to common on beach paintings, but as I said on one of the postings from this series, the sand of the beachs here are being sculpted by an invisible hand, due to high swirling winds from the North. The heavy volumonous clouds over the horizon line are just beginning there journey to cover this beach and much of the island, in fact those are the cumulus clouds that I featured on that small painting of the previous posting.
