I made this painting in Kijkduin, a beach in The Hague. It was quite chilly, I stopped when my hands were so cold that I couldn't open my paint tubes anymore :)
The beauty of real plein air (outside) painting is that there is real sand sticking to the paint, I personally love this!
View on Amsterdam. There is that overwelming big city view, but then I started to look more carefully and saw so many things, I could paint a hundred paintings of parts of that view. In this one I liked the Dutch orange mailbox, the typical crossing, boats in a canal and a car driving with an open rear- and ofcourse, the trees in great autumn colors.
The color changes of the leaves are amazing to a painter. And I cannot remember when I last experienced a cold autumn, it's been years and years. These trees you can find in Amsterdam, next to the Okura hotel.
