Vandaag ga ik de expositie in het Theehuis opbouwen. Aangezien er niet veel muren zijn heb ik er voor gekozen vooral kleine werkjes te laten zien. De expositie is geopend in de weekenden van 16 – 17, 23 – 24, 30 – 31 maart en 6 – 7 april 2019 . Op al deze dagen
The first color layer on this painting was finished a while ago. I started on the second layer but there are some problems. When I was working on the background some blue paint came over the edges of the Exota bottle. The orange paint is very transparent so it will take a lot more layers
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 challenge in this painting was also the tinfoil and the chocolate. The tinfoil in this painting is even more like an abstract painting than in the Douwe Egberts painting.

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 thought it would take me a couple of hours to paint the chocolat. I was wrong, I forgot about all the logos and other letters on every piece of chocolat. But again it was fun to do and very rewarding.
I started working on the first color layer of the Douwe Egberts coffee. The first step was the white lettering and other white parts of the package. You see so many small details that you don’t see whwn you buy the coffee in the Supermarket. The next step was painting red. Not just one color
