The clear up, after storm, South Beach, DH

't opklaren na storm, Zuiderstrand, DH
(winter beach scene #1-2014)
oil on canvas - 50 x 100 cm  (20 x 39 inches) 
painted - Fri 10 Jan 2014

First plein - air painting of the new year, and am glad I had the chance to begin it with a bang, (loud, busy painting). I choose to stay close to the dunes, and not near the sea, somewhat protected from the wind and besides the composition was just what I needed. With these conditions, rather difficult to work this size, outdoors on location.  Was lucky could  position my canvas in the direction of the wind, and had to anchor my gear down with a bag full of sand,  thus got the job done!
