oil on linnen
2" x 23.5"
painted on location - Tues 5 & Thurs 7 July 2012
Built in Germany in 1935, this 49 meter work of true craftsmanship is proudly on display at the Inner Harbour Scheveningen, here in The Lowlands. I have been contemplating painting this lovely three mast schooner ever since my eyes first made contact with it some years ago. As tomorrow is Vlaggetjesdag (Flag Day) here in Scheveningen, a festival to celebrate the new season of the harring fish, I finally set up my gear, and made this painting. I will be showing this and a fine selection of about 15 sea scapes at an art market on a stall approximately 20 meters from were I made this painting! Come and say hello if you happen to be in the area.

Beach scene with Noordwijk Sailing Clubhouse
oil on 3 wood panels,
6" x 12"
painted on location - Fri 18 May 2012
Made on the 1st morning that I woke up in the hotel De Baak, on the boulevard in Noordwijk, while I was guest artist at the Opera Aan Zee 2012 event, this small format oil gives one a fairly good representation of typical cloudy Dutch skies. Low horizon line, bringing the viewer right up close to the scene painted.
