A commissioned piece for a head of police.
Twice it came back to me because of the partner of the purchaser didn’t agree with the vibrator. The third time was a charm.
A study after sunlight hitting a still life with extreme backlight, with hints of impressionism.
A quick study. I liked doing something simple and I arranged the objects in a triangular position. With only some faint color usage. I guess I was learning the trade of oil painting still, seeing this one after all these years.
A surrealistic still life because, after all, still lifes are very boring and very still in the first place.
An oil painting based on a prestudy in charcoal.
I love foreshortened positions and although the model is tucked in very tightly, through application of the golden ratio and positioning the model according it, the composition worked out fine.
I thought a nude simply was not enough. I added the sea later.
Since my birth I am a fan of big empty spaces. I painted this one in my previous apartment at the Erasmusweg, The Hague, Netherlands and used it as a stage to suggest emptiness.
An early surrealistic attempt.
A quick study with some fruit.
An early attempt to draw realistic motifs. I can see that all depth still is lacking and I cannot remember when I saw tonal values for the first time.
