The Duin pond # 6 & Bicycling near Kijkduin

Up to now have been painting this scene with the morning Sunlight. Here I was on location late in the afternoon, and on an overcast day, thus no direct Sunlight. I have attempted to evoke moods of peace and tranquillity with this composition. Certainly the mist that was hovering over the trees in the background helped.

A nice sunny winters day, to be on location. Too windy to be on the beach so I was inspired to capture this scene as the light was just perfect for it. In the distance one can barely see the Pier of Scheveningen, however a little closer and you can see the Harbour entrance with a couple of sailboats heading out.

The Duin pond 4 & 5

De duinplas nabij De Savorin Lohmanpad #4
oil on canvas - 80 x 120 cm - (31 x 47 inches)
painted on location in 3 sittings -  23/24/25 Feb 2019

Continuing on this series, for a change, worked on a rather large format, esspecially for on location painting. This of course presented  me with a host of problems to work out! Creating depth for example. Details are much more pronounced. Hence had to return to the same location 3 times to get it looking decent. Luckily the atmospheric condition was constant, allowing me to paint it in a short time frame.

I find this format works well for this subject. Keeping the emphasis on the elegance of the tall trees. Funny how it is that every time i make a painting of this scene, it never is the same twice!
