Big Band Jazz in De Fuut, South Beach, DH

Jazz en, Strandpavilijoen De Fuut, Zuiderstrand, Den Haag

painted on location - Sunday 29 Apirl 2012

A female singer, adds a spark of colour to this Big Band ensemble all dressed in black. The drummer keeping the beat, while the director (with his back to us) pulls it all together,...what a scene to be able to paint! A first for il pittore, to actually make a painting of the interior of a beach cafe! Every Sunday Leo, owner of this establishment, brings Live Jazz music for the ardent jazz fan. Just as colourful inside as it is on the outside, a pleasure and indeed a gift  for me to be able to work in and around this beach cafe.
