Opbouw van strandpaviljoen "De Staat",
oil on canvas - 35 x 75 cm
painted on location - Fri 21 March 2014
Gifted to owners of Cafe
On a very windy beach these men are putting the pieces together of what will become the beach cafe/restaurant De Staat, here on South Beach, The Hague. The advantage this cafe has is that it is located just to the right off the path leading to and from the beach. I myself was able to make this painting thanks to the protection of a large van parked on the drive in path. Found it to be an interesting subject matter, especially the study of perspective. In the distance you see the cafe Zuid, with its flag out, already in operation.
