The last cloud meets the light

De opklaring, s' ochtends vroeg
oil on canvas - 50 x 100 cm (19 x 39 inches)
painted on location and in studio - May 2016

A special moment in time. The morning light is painting on the sky a symphony of warm pastel colors.  Most people are still catching their last dreams of the night, while these sailors are about to meet the calm North Sea. Of course il pittore is also on location, making sketches and taking pictures of this magical fleeing moment. The painting was further advanced in the studio, as such a size canvas is almost impossible to finish on location.
