The 4th painting in my “Hollandsche merken” series is finished. My mother used to buy these candies when I was a little kid. As you can see the Pepermint is the only one that is still closed. The reason for this is that I didn’t liked the taste of pepermint, and I still don’t like
The first color layer on the Calvé pindakaas painting is finished too! I can already see that the glass where there is no peanut butter needs to be darker but that’s something for the next layer. First the paint has to dry before I can continue.
The first color layer for the Verkade chocolate is finaly finished. The tinfoil was tough to paint. It felt like I was making an abstract painting… The tinfoil on the Douwe Egberts coffee was just as tough as the one on the chocolate. These two paintings have to dry for a while before I can

I always love to work on a new painting. Covering all that white canvas, I love it! It’s funny that you see things you never seen before because it is just peanut butter. When you make a photorealistic painting you study each inch of the jar. I’m quite happy with the start of this layer.
I started on the first 3 paintings in the “Dutch Brands” series. Douwe Egberts koffie, Calvé pindakaas and Verkade reep. The first step was to apply several layers of gesso on the canvas. The second step was to make detailed drawings and tranfer them to the canvas. The detailed drawings transfered to the canvas I
