Running dog, Schevening beach

Lopende hond, strand Schevening
oil on board - 25 x 35 cm (approx. 10 x 14")
painted on location - 12 Dec 2019


Freedom and space, dogs love it, and that is what they get when their bosses are kind enough to take them out for a stroll at this or any other beach for that matter. Winter has set in, so even though the sun is shining, temperature can be very low. So dress for the occasion and shake a leg, your dog will love you for it!

The Lifting of the fog, Westduinpark, The Hague

Kwartelpad, Westduinpark in de mist
oil on canvas - 50 x 150 cm
painted on location - thurs. 5 Dec 2019


This must be the 8th or 9th time i make a painting from this location. And after a long wait, I finally got a chance to paint this scene with mist. Characteristic of coastal environments, the mist is a commen occurence.  However to paint it can be difficult, as it is always either coming or going. I found a solution, and it allows me to paint it with accuracy. A close up below for better viewing.

Beach Entrance with orange "Oma" bicycle

Strandslag 9, Westduinpark en Stillestrand, DH
oil on canvas - 40 x 50 cm
painted on location - Tuesday 3 Dec 2019

€ 425 

If you live in The Hague, and haven't been for a walk at the beach, you might be confused as to where this beach entrance is located. What attracted me to make this painting was the shadow casted from that dune on leftside. With that orange bicycle secured on wooden railing, it's a dead giveaway as to the country of this seascape.
