Selma Noort



Pin It
A painting of a good (artist) friend, and best selling children's book author Selma Noort.
I really enjoyed painting her portrait.

Plein air Katwijk



Pin It
A few paintings I did during a Roos Schuring Masterclass in Katwijk.
Lots of fun, and a very nice international group of painters.




We even made the Dutch tv (Weather forecast photo of the day)

Wish you were here



Pin It
After having done mostly portraits for a while I thought it would be a good idea to try something else for a change. I started this painting by doing an underpainting, something I don't usually do, but it helped by making me think of the values and drawing first, and worry about color later.
