painted on location (South Beach, The Hague, Holland) - Thurs 11 Feb 2016
Above you have a painting I made last week, on a very cold, yet sunny day. The wind factor was comfortable for me to set up in the open air, as you can see in the thumbnail picture below. I had the challenge before me of capturing the ever changing light effect on the sea. Often passers by made the comment to me, "I don't see no green water". In Dutch of course. And my reply would be, stick around for a while and when the Sun light gets blocked by a passing cloud, then you will see it! I'm sure most of you are familiar with this colouration of the Sea. Especially on a cold winters day. A sailboat on the horizon and three seagulls closer by, help in defining the perspective.
I could imagine it is not always easy to purchase a painting simply by seeing a picture of it on a website. Most of the time the actual painting is far superior to the photograph. Sometimes the colors or not exactly true. Of course when you live nearby, you are always welcome to view the work in question at my studio in The Hague. For customers from abroad, I will offer to send detailed photos of the art work, thus you get a better idea of what you are about to purchase. DON'T BE SHY, DROP ME A LINE!
