High up in the dunes.
Pad door de duinen, Westduinpark, DH
oil on canvas, 30 x 80 cm
painted on location - Fri 11 March 2011
Views like this can give me a natural 'high', thus a little play in the words on the title! Painted at one of my favorite locations in Westduinpark, The Hague. As this path is hardly ever used, one gets the sensation of being immersed in Nature. Funny how some paintings need a proper viewing distance, in order to appreciate. With the advice of a good friend, we established that 7 meters is the distance necessary to see this painting, in the real, properly. Thus, one can take in the whole picture in a glance, rather than getting caught up in the details. You don't have this problem on your screne however, as the image is termendously smaller than in the real.
