Here I present the latest projects I’m working on. Basically, unfinished pieces and updates on how they are progressing
I am working on a large (36x48 inches) floral painting in acrylic representing a beautiful bouquet that I photographed this summer. I am trying to recreate the Old Dutch masters’ style with their fantastic luminosity. I’ve always admired this Golden period of Dutch art, with artists, such as Margaretha Haverman, or Jan Brueghel.
I started on a black-primed canvas. After carefully tracing the drawing, I preceded to paint a grey-toned first layer. This is called a ‘grissaille’, and allows me to concentrate on the value with no color interference.
