Fun, Water and life on The Beach, Dutch Style

Just a lovely day here at Zuiderstrand, The Hague. The warm light of the late afternoon brings life to this scene...kite surfers making the most of the windy situation. Decided to use a portrait size canvas, thus showing the action on the ground and in the air!

A great day for sailing as kliene Jantje is about to discover. Mom is nearby sitting on the warm sand, keeping a close watch on the situation.

Arriving on the scene, sometimes it is difficult making a final decision on what will get painted. After a drink of coffee, I take into consideration the various options, then a choice is made and the painting gets started. I guess the wave action got me going on the work above.
