View of Scheveningen from Harbour entrance
oil on linen - 18 x 120 cm
painted on location - June/July 2018 / reworked in studio Dec 2018
Another work which I decided to make major alterations on. Repainted in areas especially the water and sky. However this time cropping off several centimetres of canvas, was the major change. Which results in bringing you the viewer much closer to the subject at hand. Originally this was a canvas of 30 x 170 cm, as you can see in the picture below. I felt it worked better without the water on the foreground and cropped off the edges considerably. It is of great importance that I have to be content with my creations, otherwise that vibe will not be transferred to the eventual viewer and there is no way that I would be able to convince someone into purchasing it. BTW, also took 300€ off the price!
