A Symphony of color finds Scheveningen # 2 & 3

Kleurrijk gezicht op de Binnen Haven
oil on canvas - 20 x 40 cm
painted on location - Mon 9 Feb 2015

A rather free interpretation of this scenery, but really this array of colour does play in this quaint harbour, that we are fortunate to have here in The Hague. You wouldn't know it, but it is a very cold winters day, and believe me, standing for hours at the easel getting this painting done does chill ones bones, no matter how well you are clothed.

Het hektrawler SCH 123,
oil on canvas - 40 x 80 cm
painted on location - Tues. 10 Feb 2015, (Finished in studio Thurs 12th)

I had to work as fast as possible in order to get all those details which are characteristic of this wonderful working vessel. I will surely make more paintings from this fleet of ships. I find they add so much colour and warmth to this otherwise rather boring looking harbour. It was a pleasure to paint this scene and you can be sure you will be seeing more!
