The Rolling Waves

Rolling waves series #1
oil on canvas - 30 x 50 cm
painted on location -  Thurs 13 Oct. 2016


Here in this series I will be focusing on making close-up paintings of the waves, for the most part as they are rolling/breaking at the shoreline.  Thus colour and composition are fundamental. The paint, as you can clearly see, was amply applied, and thus will be key in the development of this series.

Closed for the Season

It was late in the afternoon, I found myself on Zuiderstrand, Den Haag. I was working on a much larger painting, but before heading back to the studio, I decided to make a smaller format painting of the scenery as it was really a beautiful moment to savour.  Below the same scenery only on a much larger scale. Also painted around the same time of the day. Obviously these paintings were made sometime ago, hence the title of this posting.

This painting is really huge, thus don't let the postage stamp size of the image on this posting fool you.I suggest you click on the painting to see it properly.
