The shortest way to my studio where I teach is via the Prins Bernhardlaan in Voorburg, Netherlands but once in a while I take a slight detour through the Notenboompark.
My last drawing was slightly cubistic but today I did this realistic one, that I would like to name ‘Golden Reality’.
Mira (2019) (sold) A commission for a drawing of a young woman that I already painted 9 years ago. Then a teenager, now a young woman and an excellent way to study the same face grown up. Special request was it to use the same color combination as in my drawing ‘sans titre – 06-10-16’ […]
Some time ago I saw underwater excavation pictures of Heracleion, an ancient Egyptian city submerged.
In my egyptian series I try to excavate treasures from the past.
When I saw the reference picture I was inspired to turn the model sitting in a bath with lots of foam around her,into a donkey milk bath with Cleopatra in it for the sake of my Egyptian ambition.
The third art work in my new series on Egypt. I experimented with my personal style ‘roundism’ in combination with realism and surrealism.
Last year I was at Oudaen, a city castle at Utrecht, Netherlands which now is a crowdy hotspot for party people. I was dining near the window in the corner with hundreds of people around me but a single cat was lying quietly by the window.
