The base of this piece is a rough, organic surface in white and grey with indigo and neutral layers beneath. Carefully placed blocks of linen and wood texture are surrounded by a matrix of delicate pencil lines.
A wave is in mid-crash against the beach, frozen in time by this seascape. Muted aqua is framed by the sandy beach in the foreground and the dark line of a distant mountain range. Presented as a petite canvas on board with a distressed white frame.
Historical oil painting on linen by Jan Willem van Borselen. The dunes in the foreground are beautifully complemented by the amazing sky with billowing clouds, shadow and light. Seen here as a petite canvas mounted on board with an ornate distressed white frame.
