Two quinces on a box

Suffering from a mild case of chocolate milk deprivation induced gloominess today, I wanted to do something fun. Luckily Rsln brought me some more quinces to paint, so I decided to try a new secret painting technique. This way of painting produces a funny looking fuzzy look, as can be seen in the image...

Bowl with eggs

Today not a 'daily painting', but a still life painting painted with a classical layered technique. This one will be presented at the 'Affordable Art Fair' in Amsterdam, in november. The painting will be available from art dealer Warnars & Warnars in Naarden (Holland)...

No daily painting today, because I have to finish up some paintings for art dealer Warnars & Warnars (Naarden), who is going represent me (and others) at the 'Affordable Art Fair' in Amsterdam. So I thought I'd post this peach which I still had lying around...

Hatertse Vennen

Went outside today with fellow artist Roderick Brenninkmeijer to paint. We went to the Hatertse Vennen area, south of Nijmegen (Holland.) Nice autumn colors there today, on this sunny day...

Quince study

Last friday, fellow artist Michel Alders visited my studio and asked me to demonstrate my techique. Got a few quinces last week from fiend Rsln, so I decided to make a study of one. Maybe she will bring me some more..?

Still life with plum

Slowly recovering from a bad cold, still feeling a bit tired. But I wanted to do something today, so I decided to do a daily painting. I bought some reine claudes, painted one and ate the rest, for vitamins. In this painting the viewer's eye is only a few millimeters above the table surface. Want to experiment some more with this traditional ant's perspective.

Sun setting behind trees

Have been ill last week, so no paintings. Today however, I went outside again with fellow artist Roderick Brenninkmeijer. Made 3 small paintings. This one, with the sun setting behind a wall of trees, I liked best. I especially liked the way the sun just shines over the tops, making a small glare at the intersection of the two rows of trees...
