Panoramic views of North and South Beach, DH

Gezicht vanaf Noorderstrand met Scheveningen Pier
oil on canvas - 30 x 150 cm
painted on location 4x - April/May 2014

This was a bit out of my usual outdoor painting location, but still very challenging and exciting to do. The young family featured on the for ground are the happy owners of this work. So you see I was asked to make this painting, a commission, if you will. At the right time of the day, and with such atmospheric conditions as
shown on this painting, this sceen can bring a smile to your face, when faced with a dark benelux grey winters day. Like I say to my potential buyers, affordable paintings for unaffordable space!

Gezicht vanaf Zuiderstrand met catamarans
oil on canvas - 30 x 150 cm
painted on location - Sat 17 en Sun 18 May 2014

This is my usual or should I  say favored painting location. Easy to get to, don't have to pay for parking. It is never really busy, because on this stretch of beach you are allowed to bring your pet dog for a walk! If you have been following me these last couple of years, you should be quite familiar with this view. However I'll bet you all the money which I have, the paintings are never exactly the same! That's precisely why I have fallen in love with making these seascapes.
