How do you paint when you have to fight the weather as much as or more than the creative fight that you are in? That's precisely what happened at the Dutch Coast, when I was on a painting holiday last month.
Biting cold, frequent bouts of rain, sand blowing right into your eyes and winds so strong that your easels have to be tied down with sandbags. Painting on top of all that. It was the most awe inspiring plein air painting that I have ever done and would sign up for it all over again in an instant. This painting depicts the sky just after a bout of rain, just when the clouds were beginning to clear up and birds started appearing on the horizon. The sun was starting to peek out after endless greys.
The painting has been completed in the highest quality oil paints. It ships flat and unframed with a protective coat of varnish. The paint has been applied in thick quick brushstrokes with touches of the palette knife here and there.
