Towards Autumn

The Veluwe in Oil We love hiking through nature and we take every opportunity to do so. Chester enjoys those adventures a lot as he can do what nature means him to do. And we enjoy him.  I took a few pictures while walking in the heath fields near Wezep (Veluwe) last year (you can see one of the reference photos beneath). The heath was at the end of its heyday but still beautifully colourful. I actually really liked this scenery, so I painted it with pleasure.  This time I tried to work with a palette knife a bit more. Not sure about the effect yet. Well, I hope you will enjoy the atmosphere.    Alla prima, oil, panel 25x35 cm. View the finished painting in my  gallery .

Another show

Amelander Kunstenaars in the Amelander Cultuurkerk Happy and proud to collaborate on this amazing art project. Twenty of my fellow island artists are to show their art the whole summer at a beautiful venue, the former old church in the historic centre of the village of Nes.  The church has recently been bought by Amelander Musea and the group of local artists was now honoured to exhibit their artworks in it. My two old paintings are among them.  We had a great opening yesterday with a lovely crowd. Wish us luck. The exhibition is mostly run by the artists themselves and is open every day between 1 pm and 5 pm until the end of October. Check the page of this art show Zomer Vol Kunst for more information.  

Hidden Place
