Fox the Fox – 04-05-22
Fox the Fox -04-05-22 is an elaboration of a graphite pencil drawing Nude – 04-10-15 I made years ago.
Wag the Dog – 24-04-22
My graphite pencil drawing Wag the Dog – 26-09-21 was waiting on the shelf to be put into oil. After my last oil Slava Ukraini – 18-04-22 I thought I’d use another surrealist theme and why not?
Hold Your Horses – 04-01-22
This graphite pencil drawing ‘Hold Your Horses – 04-01-22’ was a done deal in my head already during the live session.
Wag the Dog – 26-09-21
Wag the dog was the first title that came to mind when I saw this beautiful photo. It stems from the 1930s I think.
Sheep Have More Fun – 23-07-21
Sheep have more fun or do they? It so happened that my dear friend, poet and photographer Alexis de Roode went for a little stroll in nature.
Tristan & Isolde – 09-12-19
It so happened that I was instructing a knight on horseback to prance in front of me so I could do a live painting on him, then all of a sudden this beautiful maiden was ruling us both.
Una in aliam – 01-09-19
This oil painting is based on my drawing ‘Nude – 17-06-15’. An artist often sees one thing in another. Salvador Dali saw a rhinoceros in Vermeer’s Lacemaker. I saw a horse in a women’s thigh.
A day at the beach – 16-03-19 (sold)
This drawing is to celebrate human achievements and imagination in particular. To see one thing in another is something very real, surreal and metaphysical altogether.
5 bestialities – 19-02-19
After my last drawing ’11 bestialities – 09-02-19’ I got the hang of it and decided to do once more.
11 bestial qualities – 09-02-19
One thing in another. I try to see it all the time. Sometimes I fail, another time I see more clearly.
Aquatic superbeing – 06-11-18
This drawing is all about the aquatic qualities of the body of a woman.
Summer in Holland – 25-07-18
In the dead of summer it is so hot here in The Hague I had double vision.
The sheik of Araby – 15-10-17
I always love this jazz song and when listening to jazz doing my nudes in my apartment I made the connection all of a sudden, as I often do between visual art and music.
I lost my contacts – 23-09-17
Last Sunday I had another photo shoot and drawing session with my favorite odel and after I saw back the photos there was only one plausible conclusion: There comes a time when you look at a naked woman and discover new things.
The mythical appearance of Alexis de Roode at Voorburg – 15-05-17 (sold)
These times call for a poet that says it all.
The Ooij polder – 27-06-16 (sold)
A little pond situated in the Ooij Polder, Gelderland, Netherlands, near Nijmegen, caused me a lot of trouble. I saw human figures in the treeline and the water reflections but I had to come up with some subtlety so I wouldn’t attrack all the attention to the figures as well to the trees as a given realistic fact.
Marlot – 18-02-16
Marlot Forest is around the corner from where I live and once I saw a woman and a cow there.
Strange Goings On At ‘t Meertje – 10-02-16 (sold)
Sometimes it happens that you see faces in trees and water. Such was the case when I came to ‘t Meertje, a place near Ooij and Nijmegen, Gelderland, Netherlands
Nude – 04-10-15
When I saw this photo for the first time I didn’t know what to think of it. I do not relate to so-called romantic art of ballerinas and dancers striking great poses.
Nude – 17-06-15
When I saw this photo for the first time I didn’t know what to think of it. I do not relate to so-called romantic art of ballerinas and dancers striking great poses. Therefor I had to come up with something different and I was intrigued by the pose nevertheless.
