Summer fun on the beach, Wassenaarseslag

oil on canvas
8" x  19.5"
Sun 19 Aug 2012SOLD

Everyone is having a ball on the beach here in Wassenaar these past days. With a wave of hot sun rays showering down on The Lowlands, the beaches were crowded and busy! In the horizon, the Pier and modest skyline of Scheveningen. On the foreground, loads of kids splashing about the warm waters left behind from the receding tide.

The Art Saleswoman, Montemarte (Dordrecht)

oil on canvas
9.5" x  12"
painted on location - Sun 5 Aug 2012  -  $ 350

Her name is Wilma and she can sell my paintings far better than I can! We were invited to take part in the Montemarte, Art manifestation on the GrootHoofd square in Dordrecht. The weather was ideal for such an event, and really, is the reason why this scene was worth painting!  Talking about the play of sunlight. Lighting up the facades of the buildings, and the square.  Making its way onto bouncing off the multitude of people hinted at on the terras, and of course, most importantly, on the subject of this very work, the seller of the paintings.
