Beach Scenes # 3 & # 4, Texel, Holland

Strand gezicht #3, Texel, NL
oil on canvas 15 x 30 cm
painted on location, - Sat 10 April 2010

This little canvas although rather small in dimension, still manages to afford the viewer an emmense view of a solitary beach. Nature dominates in Il pittores vision, thus I choose to keep the crowds at bay. Those savoury cumulus clouds where casting shadows that literally swept by at a speed comparable to a gutsy BMW travelling on a German autobaan.

Almost the same view as beach scene #2, this was made on a sunny yet very windy day. Cloud formations were mind boggeling, to say the least. What can I say, that hasn't been said already? Texel is a cool place, if you love nature, then it is really worth a visit. Nice people also, Island folk, somewhat less hurried than us urban dwellers.
