oil on canvas - 50 x 70 cm
painted on location - Tuesday 18 April 2017
I was inspired to make this painting, because for me this is an inviting scene for anyone who is longing to be at the beach here on the coast of Holland. I'm beginning to understand why so many German tourists are visiting Kijkduin. I was inspired by the white color of the Beach Cafe with hints of color here and there, and the shadow being cast by the afternoon Sun. And of course the wave action was very picturesque that day. Still rather cold, with much wind, however, if one dresses warmly, it is fine.
