'Into the woods'
What do you do on a cold and rainy autumn day? Experimenting with watercolor paint at my parents' table with a hot cup of chocolate. How I love that whole looseness of watercolors. Suggestion is very important. Details unimportant. Less is more!
The white scratches in the distance suggest the trunks of the trees; the blue and faint suggests distance. The color and a little more detail at the bottom give a close-up suggestion. And there we have the depth of field effect!
‘Live a good life’
A big project. Our new dining room has a concrete floor. This made the sounds very loud and hollow. That's why I made this large linen sound-absorbing artwork. What a difference this makes! And that big bare wall was immediately nicely decorated.

The same 2 echoes together on 1 canvas. This version in a slightly tighter and calmer image.

A painting I made during a wonderfully relaxed and educational art retreat with Marieke Kamperman. Opted for popping contrasting colors in a casual environment.
16 x 16 inch
A nice assignment. A watercolor that has been used as an illustration for a moving notice/postcard. The new residents asked me to paint their cat as well. He guards their new home nicely!
