AMSTERDAM WESTERKERK IN SUMMERTIME
NEW CITYSCAPE AMSTERDAM ADDED TO MY WEBSTORE
Last week I went to Amsterdam so I could finally paint the Summer in the city!
Was really great to see the beautiful typical Dutch cloudy sky and all the fresh green leaves. Hope you will enjoy this painting as much as I do? Added it to my site today. It's almost dry so I can frame it. Want to see more of my cityscapes...... go here and click on the link: CITY
New cityscape Utrecht Lombok
Painting at the bridge near the Rijksmunt
This week started a new painting of my own neighbourhood Lombok in Utrecht. It's a slightly larger canvas than I usually work with outdoors, so I had to finish it today.
I really love the old little white bridges at the canal near the Rijksmunt. I decided to paint next to the bridge so I could use the first bridge as a frame to make an interesting composition. At least that is what I think, I hope you agree with me....?
As soon as it's dry I will try to exhibit it in the exhibition at the Parkhuis Lombok in the JP Coenstraat 5 so you can all enjoy this one.

Painting in Amsterdam at the canal
Amsterdam Canal in Springtime
Last week went to Amsterdam to paint at the bridge the view at the canal in Springtime. Went to Amsterdam to bring my paintings for the exhibition at Arte-fact in the Berenstraat 24 and then thought of coming back later to paint the great view over the Prinsengracht at the Westerkerk. Although it was already Springtime and I was dressed up warm with my thermo-wear it was a really cold and windy day. Was stamping my feet on the bridge to get warmer. Great to paint the view at the Prinsengracht on a grey day. Think the old painting master Breitner would have loved the colors of this day too.
Hope you will enjoy my painting!
Added it to my shop yesterday for more info go to CITY
PAINTING IN COMMISSION
Capturing sweet memories
Last summer I was asked to make a painting in commission for a family. They were planning to leave their so beloved neighbourhood. And asked me to capture their house in the surrounding, so they could keep this sweet memory and bring it to their new home.
Always exiting to make a painting in commission, yesterday when I presented the painting they were very happy with the end result. I am thrilled because they also bought another painting of the neighbourhood I painted about a year ago.
What a great moment and big pleasure to see them happy with both paintings!
I know these two paintings of mine found a great and warm new home :-)
Last week had the chance to paint these young optimists on a hot and sunny day. Had to grab this last opportunity and paint the boats on my favorite canal. Last day this summer for the sailingschool Zeilschool Lombok Utrecht. Was great fun to see these youngsters sailing and paint them! By the time I finished the painting and made this picture they were gone.
