Sailing in the Rain, South Beach, DH

Zeelen tijdens 't regent, Zuiderstrand, DH
oil on canvas
40 x 100 cm
painted on location - Sunday 05 June 2011


You might be curious as to how I got that painted on location, whilst it was raining! Will thanks to the sailing clubhouse The Hague, I was able to sit up next to the building, which protected me from the rain. It was just a slight drizzle, on and off, actually, thus not a threatening situation. I rather like the mood that the sea gives off on these sumber days. All those variations of benelux greys, at times, give one a rather calming soothing affect. Certainly not the least bit unpleasant to appreciate. Also I enjoyed painting the wet sand. Of course I gave myself some artistic freedom with the colors scheme, but what the hell, I'm in the business of creating beauty, not ugliness.
