At the Seaside

oil on canvas panel - Öl auf Malplatte - huile sur carton entoilé
15 cm x 15 cm / 5,9" x 5,9"

This is a sketch for a larger painting I might want to paint soon. It is based on one of my all time favourite black and white photographs of my parents and was taken when they had just started dating. I love the carefree mood and the feeling of summer, sun and love. And, from a visual point of view I really like the way the colours of their clothes form a cross - a checker board design - and I like the angle, seeing them from below which gives lots of open sky as background.

How beautiful. I like the expression on your mother's face.
