South Beach, The new look.

An overall view of the so called quiet beach (stillestrand) from about the middle point between Scheveningen and Kijkduin. As obvious the sky is playing a major role in this composition. Not as easy as it looks, but getting those clouds to look convincing is a major task of most plein air painters. My advice, work quickly and don't lay in the paint too thick, remember what you are painting are vaporous gases lingering in the air, being swished around by the force of the wind.
