The first day of a new year needs a new oil painting. Today I started ‘Tristan & Isolde’, an elaboration of a drawing of the same name: ‘Tristan & Isolde – 09-12-19 (sold)’.
For everybody who is interested in who an art work like this is created: Here is the build-up for Geesje Kwak (2021)
I consider my previous drawing Geesje Kwak – 10-05-21 (sold) a success and that is why I started an oil painting last week. I haven been struggling with the resemblance the last days and I think I am beginning to capture her finally.
Last week I started a new painting project, based on a previous graphite pencil drawing ‘In Hoc Signo – 14-10-19 (sold)’. More post on the work in progress will follow.
My Frida Kahlo project almost finished.
People asked me what it’s like to teach during this corona pandemic.
Today I have been busy all day working on my Frida Kahlo project. Fine tuning facial features among others.
In these Corona times I returned to my studio at Brugman Art where I started to teach to students (one at a time) again and working on my Frida Kahlo project
On track with my Frida Kahlo project, based on my drawing ‘Sans titre – 11-10-18’. Getting the resemblance right. Covid-19 has entered the scene as well. Lots of work to do.
Not finished yet. Some details to do but my father completed the framing job on my new project ‘The Restoration of Bettie Page (2020)’ (oil on wood panel 85 x 120 cm).
