It is not too often that one see's a rainbow at the North Sea, but they occur regularly enough. Determined to make a painting at the beach I headed out. Fortunately the sky was clearing up and by the time i got set up I was afforded this spectacular view.  From somewhere in between Kijkduin and the Zandmotor, this painting was made. If you look closely you will see the enormous ferris wheel at the peer of Schevening

Strange but that song kept playing in my head whilst I was make these two quick oil sketches. For me no better way to start the year than to be doing my thing at my favorite beach. While most people were stripping off their warm clothing and taking the tradition dip in the frigidly cold clashing waves, il pittore was just a few meters away capturing the beauty of the opening sky, with the swift movement of the cloud formations.  Luckily the rain had just passed by, thus my timing was good, sit myself up and knocked off these two medium sized paintings simultaneously.
