Strong winds from northwestt – 7BF , Pastel, 30×45cm,

Right now the difference could’t be bigger from the weather we have today and the one I had painted on the pastel. These are the weather conditions I like so much at the Northsea. The wind is howling across the sand and changes the formations of the clouds every minute,
Well, the weather right now is not so much painterfriendly. Just blue sky and no waves at all, because the wind is coming from the land. But this is what painting plein air is as well: you don’t always have the best conditions and with every painting I will learn something.
