Life on the Quiet Beach-Summer 2017

Het Gouden Uur, vindt Zuiderstrand

this is the view one can see, on the top of the steps going down to the beach cafe/restaurant De Kwartel. It is late in the afternoon, the warmth of the Sun, not only feels good, it illuminates all in a golden tint. A favorite time for us outdoor painters to be active.

Rise and shine, It's a Beautiful Day

The start of a busy beach day, I like to get out as early as possible, thus before the Sun is at its warmest,  I am already packing up and usually, when all goes well, leaving with a completed painting.  I said before and I'll say it again, Man am I lucky to have this beach just a few short city blocks away.
