Life on The Quiet Beach - Summer 2017 - N. 2
oil on canvas - 20 x 60 cm
painted on location/and studio - 24 June 2017/July 2017
A painting made on a very windy beach, one fine afternoon in June. Waves too dangerous for the
inexperienced swimmer, so this chap dipped in for a few moments, but then wisely decided to head back on solid ground.....

I can never be grateful enough for the lovely compositions one is afforded with the colorful coloration of these objects on the beach here in The Hague. Inspiration for this painting was Theo Janssen working on his latest "Strandbeesten"....The wind was also helping me make this an interesting work by creating all those interesting cloud formations.

I rather like these days when the Sun is not so strong that it makes everything blue and bright at the Sea. Grey tints of color take on an importance, that to a painter can be very tasteful to the palette used on the canvas. Lots to see on these large panoramic paintings, however on line very little is shown, thus a close up of the focal point in this work.
