Pond in the dunes, The Hague

De duinplas, Westduinpark en Stillestrand,
Oil on canvas - 80 x 120 cm  (31" x 47" )
painted on location - Sat.21 March 2020

€1250

The winter is almost at an end, one can feel the warmth thanks to a welcomed Sunny day. City dwellers love taking advantage of this situation and are to be seen walking through the many walkpaths found in these dunes.Last year I started a series at this very location. For the first time in 2020 I have decided to further develop this series with this fresh new painting. Actually what I have done here is rework a painting I made last year in Feb.  Here below a picture of what it looked like originally.

Pier and Ligthouse, Schevening

Gezicht op Schevening, met Pier en Vuurtoren
oil on canvas - 18 x 24 cm
painted on location - Mon 9 March 2020

€ 235

I have been looking at this view of Schevening for many years now, but this is the first time I actually paint it. And am glad I did so,  while still the lighthouse is in full view. The people from The Hague know what I am talking about, for you others, that low building in front of the red tower will be demolished soon, and up will be going a luxury apartment building, which will then make this view no more!

The Hofvijver, The Hague # 14

Een mooie winters dag bij de Hofvijver, Den Haag
oil on canvas - 40 80 cm
painted on location - Wed. 4 March 2020

€ 625

Here I am yet again further developing this Hofvijver series. If you want to know what inspired this view, just take a look at that sky! However, not only those lovely clouds floating about, but the light fall was very captivating for me. I have exaggerated the colors a little in order to give it a fresh happy look, which happens to be one of the reasons I paint, to bring some happiness into peoples lives.
