I have painted this lighthouse on many occasions already, the only thing was, from a great distance! Inspired by a picture I saw on Facebook,  I decided to get up close and have a good look at this enormous structure.  It is new subject matter for me, and it feels fine to get on location and meet the challenges she presents to me. A pleasure to be working on one of the very few authentic corners left in Scheveningen.

A sunny winters day - South Beach, The Hague

Een zonnige winterdag, Zuiderstrand, DH
Oil on canvas - 30 x 40 cm
painted on location - 28 Jan. 2018

We have been experiencing fantastic sunny conditions these past few weeks. Mind you that comes with a price, and that means very low temperatures. Oh well as long as the wind is not too strong it is really quite nice to be on location.  This is actually the 1st plein - air painting of  2018 for me, glad it was made on my favorite place.
