Svinkloev Badehotel- Denmark, oil painting

"The Svinkloev Hotel- Denmark"- 24x18, oil on linen

Nestled among sand dunes overlooking the Baltic Sea in Northern Denmark, The Svinklov Badehotel is a popular destination for travelers , as well as Danish locals. The reference photo depicted the hotel in what I am guessing was a late afternoon setting, and the hotel was bathed in a warm light, as were the dunes that were not in shadow. I pushed the color quite a bit and worked the sky to add drama to the quiet, picturesque setting. Here is the reference photo where you can see the warm colors that have infused the scene:

This painting was a commissioned piece, and is sold. If you would like me to paint a special scene for you, please send me an email at
