IF Opinion

15x20cm - acrylics and ink on paper

I hope an opinion can be something that is not rock hard, but that is flexibel. We need to keep on thinking and stay open for change, because it is just an opnion, it might be wrong. Keep the discussion going on. Keep talking. Keep thinking.

I made this one from my little nieces, for their birthdayboy father.

A good reason te be pissed

Inspired by all the dailypainters I see on the net like René and Rob, I started painting on a really small size too, This one is A5 (21x15cm, 8x5inches) and I had fun with it for an half hour. I can do that every day! ... I think

And another source of inspiration is this book with pictures from Gianni Giansanti, but as usual i pick my subject from the site of the picture. This Konso woman is standig somewhere on a market picture. She must have a good reason...

Model Marianne

At the modelclass in Hoevelaken this week the model was Marianne. I made some sketches in ink, and i was surprised that an old fashioned pen was so pleasant to use for this. I was less happy with the paintings i made this evening. I will keep on practising.
