Summer fun, Kijkduin - (At the Beach Series # 14 - 2013)
oil on canvas - 30 x 150 cm
painted on location - Sun 14 July 2013
Here I have sit up my easel at the most Northerly point of the ZandMotor, at Kijkduin. You can see the natural effect the water erosion is causing on the beach at this area. The river like sea water plaas, extends for almost 2 kilometres (from bottom left of painting), thus forming an island like peninsula. A man made pilot project extension of beach sand to insure a natural build up of the beach at Kijkduin and The Hague. The scene was much more crowded than what you see here, but I have the freedom of making the compositions of this body of paintings I call, At the Beach Series. Below a close up of the action taking place. Kids mostly having fun, lots of fun, and it is all for free. Now that's really Dutch!
