Warmth of Indian Summer days II, South Beach, DH

A hot moment at HKZV, Zuiderstrand DH
oil on canvas - 60 x 90 cm
painted on location - 14 Sept 2016

This is no doubt one of the best paintings I made in 2016.  Depicted is the recently renovated Catamaran club house of The Hague.  I think the position of the primary colored objects at the end of the row of catamarans, ads a certain attraction to this piece. The soft atmospheric condition caused by the extreme heat of the Indian summer temperature has helped in creating a feeling of tranquility to the scene. I'm glad I decided to get out on location, on this dayof September 2016.  Sometimes for a painter, it pays to get out there early and catch the shadows, which usually add in the composition of the work at hand.
