The Yellow Buoy, South Beach, DH
oil on canvas, 50 x 100 cm
painted on location - Mon 25 March 2013
"As we live a life of ease, Everyone of us has all we need. Sky of blue, and sea of green, in our yellow submarine"! (The Beatles). Had to think of these lyrics as I was making this painting, which features a yellow buoy and I was next to a yellow beach cafe (De Fuute) ha, ha,.... Extremely cold temperatures due to high winds, most unusual this time of year, thus had to find some shelter in order to get this painting made. Was grateful for the clouds, that add an interesting dimension to this scenery, and gives an indication of the wind. .
