oil on canvas - 60 x 90 cm
painted on location - Sunday 7 March 2021
Finding myself last weekend on the island Texel in the North of Holland, I was inspired to make this painting. Very cold but lots of sunlight and will it took sometime but finally found this quaint scene to put on the canvas. Something about the tonal quality of this scene actually did the trick that got my creative juices flowing. As the sky for me was pretty well overcast, the sandy colors dominate and my palette stayed limited to earthy tones. Also was lucky to have the sunlight behind me lighting up the whole foreground and once in a while right up to the horizon line.
