I remembered I was not quite satisfied by the color saturation and the color scheme itself. It leaned too much on the red and purple side. Besides that, the proportions were slightly off. Mishaps If you become curious right now, I have a whole bag of mishaps loitering about. It is one of the long and winding roads an artist has to take, especially when frantically looking for a style to call my own. In the meantime this kind of impressionism in hatched strokes I did a lot but once in a while it is fun to take it up once again. In fact posting ‘ Pastel Study 04 (2013) ’ reminded me to finish this one. Second Chance Sometimes you have to give a pastel a second chance or in other worlds, give myself a new shot at it. The solution was fairly simple. I adjusted the foreshortening a bit and added green to the scene, compensating for the deep dark purples and reds that come from Schmincke and Unison. Sometimes the color it is too dire and hatching some greens in might do the trick, resulting in almost a kind of divisionism as employed by pointillists.

My work can be seen in many countries all over the world. I employ a variety of styles that all have one thing in common: the ever search for the light on phenomena and all the shadows and light planes they block in. My favorites in doing so are oil paint, dry pastel and graphite pencil. It is not the form or the theme that counts but the way planes of certain tonal quality vary and block in the lights. Colours are relatively unimportant and can take on whatever scheme. It is the tonal quality that is ever present in my work, creating the illusion of depth and mass on a flat 2d-plane. I combine figurative work with the search for abstraction because neither in extremo can provide the desired art statement the public expects from an artist. Besides all that, exaggeration and deviation is the standard and results in a typical use of a strong colour scheme and a hugh tonal bandwith, in order to create art that, when the canvas or paper would be torn into pieces, in essence still would be recognizable.
I teach art (drawing / painting) at Voorburg, Netherlands where I have my second studio next to my first at The Hague, Netherlands, where I live.
