After the Storm, South Beach, The Hague

oil on canvas - 20 x 39  inches 
painted - Fri 10 Jan 2014
$900. (€675)

First plein - air painting of the new year, and am glad I had the chance to begin it with a bang, (loud, busy painting). I choose to stay close to the dunes, somewhat protected from the wind and besides the composition was just what I needed. With these conditions, rather difficult to work this size, outdoors on location.  Was lucky could  position my canvas in the direction of the wind, and had to anchor my gear down with a bag full of sand,  thus got the job done!
