Halo Day

Thick Atmosphere & Sunshine

This was so special.

Looking up, at the end of the painting there was a huge halo around the sun. Other people also saw it, filming it. (see below)

Thick atmosphere yet sunny.

I made the mistake many times before: where I created a rather thin painted sky, and a thick painted beach.

I think the trick is to use as much paint for the sky as for the rest. And with clouds you cannot have too little paint. Then: do not create only thick painted clouds: but use a similar thickness for all parts. Also the ‘blue’ parts.

I love this painting. Currently it’s at Gallery ‘Bonnard’ in Nuenen (Holland).
