Misty path to the Sea

Pad naar Zee met Mist
oil on canvas - 30 x 50 cm
painted on location - Wed 28 Dec. 2016


I was on my way to the beach to make another wave painting, when this scenario was just too difficult to resist painting. Even though I've painted this view many times, this is the first one with a mysterious atmosphere. Upon finishing the painting I felt it needed something to make it somewhat interesting..luckily there happened to pass by this man with his dog, thus that was the finishing touch. Here a picture of me just getting started on this painting.

Rolling Waves # 3, "the whispering waves"

Rolling Wave series # 3 - "de fluisterende golven",
oil on canvas - 30 x 50 cm
painted on location - Mon 19 Dec. 2016


The seagull glides by, searching for a bite to eat, or maybe just admiring her own reflection, on the somewhat still water. There is hardly any wind to talk about, i find that comforting as the temperature has dropped considerably. Luckily the Sun was shinning thus making the experience for me on location,  pleasant. This series is developing, one can already see, that the subject is in a constant state of flux, making it always interesting for me, the painter of the South Beach.
