"Tout est autobiografique, meme l'imaginaire", Claude Simon. All the things you draw or paint is about yourself. It's your way of looking, your way of moving, your inside, your heartbeat etc that becomes visible in your handwriting, in your compositions, your use of colours. And of course: Painting is about composition, structure, colours. About contrasts: opaque & transparant, warmth & cold, emptiness & fulness etc. It's not the subject that matters, but the way it is represented. In the eighties and nineties I painted watercolours. Next years I worked for a long time inside, in the studio, painting stillifes. Nowadays I make my drawings outside again, in small sizes and take them inside to enlarge them or to work them over. A lot of painters have influenced me, some by the way they worked, others more directly by the drawings or paintings they've made. Some are wellknown, some are not. I very appreciate the works of Otto de Kat for example, or the drawings and paintings of Albert Baertsoen, Further the Canadian painters J.P. Lemieux and Tom Thomson. It's a pity you can hardly find them in the galleries here in Europe. The past ten years I've seen drawings and prints of Avigdor Arikha: I appreciate the strong blacks & whites in his works, the astonishing ease... "While walking I think painting".

  • Hi Karl,
    Wondeful picture, your 'Guter Mond'. Especially the brightness of the moon & the colour mixture of the sky. A nice twin aside mine

  • Hi Christine,
    Thank you for your comment on the paintings in my gallerys. I've choosen your study of a reading person. I do like the "bonnardesque" atmosphere of this
    painting. Douwe

  • Hi Vincenzo,
    Thanks for your message. I've to admit: ' Sloot ' has cost me some years of painting & refelection, before I found the solution for the size of the air in the foreground and its colour.

  • Hello Vincenzo,
    I've choosen your painting 'Pizzo delle pecore all'alba' . I like the blues and the grey-greens, the contrast between foreground and rocks.

  • I like your photograph "Une echarpe de brume" . The shades of colours are close related to my paintings.

  • Hi CurryQ! Wonderful paintings you've made.
    I do like 'the yesterday woman', the beautiful
    light all over it. I appreciate your reaction.

  • Hello Kristian,
    I've chosen your 'She is standing at the window'. Wonderful, the warmth of the reds below, contrasting the dark browns and ochres.
