View of the beach #2, Texel, Holland
Strand gezicht #2 Texel, NL
oil on canvas
60 x 80 cm (thus a fair size)
painted on location - Monday 12 April 2010
Texel is known for its vast beaches, which most people here value dearly, as space is a much cherished comoditiy here in this somewhat overcrowded little country of The Lowlands. What I've done here on this canvas, is give ample room for the sky to dominate the composition, thus creating a sense of grandeous space. The clouds were also fun to paint, as they formed into shapes unique to this area.
The colors of the detail shown here below are truer to the original canvas.
