View of the 'ZandMotor'- Kijkduin, Holland
oil on canvas - 30 x 80 cm
painted - august 2013
It's a lovely warm summers day, what better thing to do than go cool off by the water edge. Just what the people featured in this scene are doing! Here you have a repaint of a work I made in Nov 2011, when the Zandmotor was still in fabrication! Yes in fabrication, as this is a man made phenomenon! More precisely, a Dutch man made phenomenon. The intention is that the waves will bring sand to the beach, in a natural way, thus insuring that the beach will remain wide enough to protect the coast against from eventual rising sea levels, and also from tidal storm waves which can cause untold damage to the dunes. Featured below the original painting, which I have painted over.
