Summer Fun On The Beach - # 5,6,7

Moeder en kindern op strand

The sailboat featured got unusually close to the shore, making it a must for me to paint into the composition. In fact made a little story from the characters featured in the foreground and the vessel.

Sure am glad that there are enough local folk that are as much in love with this beach scenery as I am, as every time I make one of these paintings, it usually sells before the paint is dry! If you compare this with the same scene of previous postings you will see that in fact, one can never experience the same situation twice, there is always a different play of light happening, which in turn effects the whole scene. Featured in this work is the world renowned artist/inventor Theo Janssen, You can see him and an assistant working on one of his StrandBeest, (beach monster).
