Some work I finished last couple of weeks:

In this painting I wanted to create a transparent wave coming ashore.

This Dutch landscape is made as a commission for someone in Moldavia. She comes from Holland and wanted something typical Dutch. Sooo.... windmills and water.

Fall 2017

Each year I try to paint an autumn-landscape. Problem is  the complexity  of color, all kind of branches going different ways etc.
After seeing a you tube video of Michael  James Smith
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4FW9IMQ59A0, I knew how to start a complex painting.
Of course you don't copy a painting, but it really helps to discover how to handle a problem.
Like Michael I started the painting from back to fore-ground, put a lot of layers  over the former layer of paint.
I wanted to let the viewer feel the thickness of all the leaves laying on the ground. See the sun coming trough the leaves at the right.

Aagtekerke in evening sun

The barley field in the fore-ground was a difficult one. How to paint the barley as realistic  as possible witout detailing it too much.

Evening sun at the beach

Painted this from a picture I took last month. The incoming light was a real chalenge to paint.
