St. George and the Dragon Café, The Hague

Op 't terras bij Sint Joris en de Draeck, DH
oil on canvas
50 x 70 cm - (20 x 28 inches)
painted on location in 6 settings - 20/3/2011 - 02/04/2011


In my eyes the most picturesque, café scene The Hague has to offer! Situated on a corner, Weimarstraat with Van Swietenstraat, across the street from the trendy Koningsplein. Patrons of this establishment, are once again able to enjoy the Sun's rays, casting warmth and light on this sidewalk café. Il pittore also takes advantage of the sunlight, which casts shadows and highlights objects. Making it a delight and a challenge for a plein air painter. This is a neigbourhood café/restaurant, which we Hagenaars are all very proud of! The inside is also authentically cordial and a visual feast for the eyes.

My favorite of all!
The colors in the awnings and the building are just stunning. Of course the red/green harmony...
