I have been looking at this view of Schevening for many years now, but this is the first time I actually paint it. And am glad I did so, while still the lighthouse is in full view. The people from The Hague know what I am talking about, for you others, that low building in front of the red tower will be demolished soon, and up will be going a luxury apartment building, which will then make this view no more!

Here I am yet again further developing this Hofvijver series. If you want to know what inspired this view, just take a look at that sky! However, not only those lovely clouds floating about, but the light fall was very captivating for me. I have exaggerated the colors a little in order to give it a fresh happy look, which happens to be one of the reasons I paint, to bring some happiness into peoples lives.
