oil on canvas - 24 x 30 cm
painted on location - Tues. 25 May 2017
It's time to pack up and head home, but little Jaap is only interested in taking another dip in the fresh cool water of the North Sea, his mother doesn't agree and hastily chases him. Finding myself on location, on South Beach, The Hague, at the beginning of the famous golden hour, (the time when the Sun is low enough to cast a warm light, ideal for painting), I was witness to this situation. Luckily I was almost finished this painting, just it needed something extra, thus as quick as possible I painted the Mom chasing her boy, and am glad I did it quickly, as it seems to have captured the situation perfectly.
