The Sea, the sky, and the wind of South Beach, DH

The Gentle rolling wave

Here I set up my easel right up close to the shore line. The colors of the Sea where the main source of inspiration. However just catching the movement of the waters surface turned out to be a rewarding challenge.

Still very cold, especially with high wind factor, thus working small. Here the view from in front of the beach paviljoen, De Staat. You can see that the sand of the beach is very messy, after weeks of stormy weather. 

Path in the Dunes, WestduinPark, DH

Love these typical Dutch skies, with drifting cumulus clouds. Everything is lit up, except for the  shadows caused by the mass of clouds. I think I will have to revisit this location with a much larger panoramic format canvass.
