Summer fun, On the beach 1 & 2

Dancing clouds, happy people
oil on canvas - 50 x 70 cm
painted on location - Tuesday  5 Aug 2014

The wind had picked up somewhat, last time I got out to paint. Had to put the 3 meter parasol to use as a windbreaker, as I was set up just meters away from the shoreline. As obvious, in this work the clouds are playing a dominant role in the composition. Myself am quite happy with the results of this particular painting, something about the saturated colours and just a freshness about it.

Lazy clouds, happy sun bathing people

Same beach as the above painting, different view point, was set up more or less on the middle of the beach. Glad I was on location fairly early, as the temperatures went to high for my comfort zone, however the people featured on this work have a different opinion! Characterised by brilliant colours this work has a happy feel about it, like I keep saying to persons viewing my painting, "het kan hier zo mooie zijn"!
