At the age of ten I started my first Art-lessons of figure and portraiture, where through the life drawing classes I improved my drawing and observational skills. My Tutor, Jhr C Graswinckel, (1906- 1990) a well-known artist in the Netherlands and a honourable member of the Zwolse Art association “Het Palet”.
Murals of Make Believe
what will it be?!
The preparations before I start a mural: I will clean the wall with soapy solution and priming the wall if necessary to help the paint stick to the wall more easily. I am not using a grid method or a art projector as I am able to work 0from a very small image and enlarge this freehand. I will finish the mural to seal it with a clear archival varnish in a matt or satin sheen. Spot murals starting from 1 x 1 mtr.
Portrait and Figure Drawing
Portraits are done from a photograph or live model. My favorite medium are conté and charcoal but I can use pastel or pencil if required.
Watercolor or watercolour, also aquarelle is a painting method in which the paints are made of pigments suspended in a waterbased solution. Watercolors refers to both the medium and the resulting artwork.
