Zuiderstrand commision painting



 Study for Zuiderstrand commision painting
oil on canvas - 20 x 60 cm
painted on location - Tues 07 July 2020

 € 275

As this was the first time I make a painting of this view I decided a study would be a good idea. Thus a week before I made that larger painting below I made this smaller study to familiarise myself with this view. This helps me in making decisions about the final composition

Here is the final version of this commision scene. It is what the customer wanted, thick Dutch clouds sweeping across the sky, the dunes, a summery feeling. I had to wait for the right conditions, was lucky for me that this took place just a couple of days ago. Again here in this sceen I have omitted a very large new construction area, which is what the customer desired, and I must admit I would have left that elephant of a building which would have appeared just above the white roof of the 1st beach pavilion on the left side  

Hommage on South Beach, The Hague #3

Oude aan Zuiderstrand #3
oil on linen - 30 x 170 cm
painted on location - 12 July 2020

€ 745

This is the 3rd of the Oude to South Beach here in The Hague. This view is painted in the afternoon as then the lighting is just right for this view. Nice Dutch clouds rolling on by, alaways a treat to paint. The new buildings going up in Schevening are starting to block the view of that monumental landmark red lighthouse. You don't see that building as I put to use my artistic freedom and just not painted it in!  again for your viewing pleasure to close ups.
