2 views from The Quiet Beach

Laat 's midags bij Aanslag #10,
oil on mdf panel - 14 x 39 cm
painted on location - Wed 23 April 2014

This small panoramic view of our lovely Quiet beach was made with some degree of expressive freedom. I left out many details to give it a greater sense of emptiness, thus giving an even greater feeling of space. The light was soft as the Sun was already on its way to meet the horizon. You might have notice that I purposely ended the pier, before it makes contact with the left edge of the painting. This gives the eye a chance to rest, thus bringing ones attention back to what's going on in the for ground.
