XXL View of South Beach, The Hague #2
XXL Gezicht op Zuiderstrand, DH
oil on MDF - 35 x 185 cm
painted on location - Tues 23 July 2013
The heat wave is back! This could have been made this morning, it would have looked like this at about 09.45hrs, just before the mass crowds arrive. Today I was on location, but not here, rather at Kijkduin boulevard, making a painting of the Zandmotor. Was on location at 9am, packed it up with a finished canvas at 12.30pm. We here in The Hague are lucky to have such a beautiful beach at our doorstep! And yes I do agree that maybe the beach by you is nicer, because it is so, but nothing wrong with this scene. What a little sunshine can do to make us Dutchies in The Lowlands happy, is very much appreciated. Below 2 close ups for your viewing pleasure.
