Sand-dune by postapocalypsia Sand-dune by postapocalypsia
This was painted while perched on the edge of the dune while the wind played havoc with my paints and board. The view is looking north from the coastal town of Klitmoller in the north-west of Denmark.
Acrylic on canvas board.

Dear Deviant,

 

I have Favourited your deviation because I sincerely think it is worthy of such a title. If you are wondering why this message is so formal-sounding and impersonal in nature, it's because as a past non-DA user, I have been keeping all my favourite Deviations bookmarked in my browser for a couple of years, and I am finally uploading all those deviations unto my current DA profile! So while it is impractical for me to lay down a thoughtful comment for all these collected Deviations at this time, I want you to know that when I first came across your piece, it did (and still does) deserve a note of appreciation. I apologize for not being able to share individual comments at this time: your Deviation deserves it in my opinion!

 

Thanks for reading,

DaniBeez

Love your style. Vacationed in an area very similar to this in Canada. Great memories of discovery on the dunes there.

And yet, despite the wind you got an amazing picture! You can feel the wind in the painting :nod:

...and if you look really closely, there may be grains of sand in the paint!
Thank you for your feedback :)

Damn. I was looking at the painting, and thought to myself: That looks a lot like Denmark. I was at Klitmöller some years back, and that's why I came to think of Denmark. I remembered the dunes and the wind there. Perfectly captured atmosphere, I guess. : )
Great work!

I was staying with a friend in one of the small beach houses behind the dune, so I had plenty of opportunities to paint and explore.
Glad you like it! :)
