Imagingatelier


Reality is all about perception and perception is based on images we percieve. Creating images is creating structure in the chaos that surrounds us. It is isolating objects out of the whole, to be able to understand and act. I'm using imaging here in a literal meaning. I have been drawing images as long as I can remember, but always in periods of my life. I need a certain rest to be able to do this, so it was usually during the vacations that I used paper and pencel to draw. In my professional life 'Powerpoint' was my sharpest tool to communicate my thoughts by means of images.

Now that I am retired I finnaly have the time to really be actively involved in drawing and painting. The main reason that I picked this up again: "I'm spending way too much time behind my pc". In the slideshow above you'll find the collection of images/drawings/paintings I created since I'm 20 jears old for as far as I still have them. When you want the slideshow to stop put the cursor on the picture. When you want to see the picture in total including all there is to know, use the menu above that wil lead to a gallery of pictures.

For technical reasons I switched to a new presentation format.
Below are galleries of my works classified according to the period or group in which I am or was active.
 
Each gallery has a scroll bar that allows you to see what's available.
The sort order is 'most recent' first.
If you click on a picture, you can see it in full with the details and you can walk through all the pictures.
If you then double click you will get the full size image. This is also the format you get when you click on the disk sign to download.

Lots of fun.This is my painting workbench.

Art Partout

In January 2022 I started a course 'Realistic fine painting techniques' at Art Partout.
I follow the course online because then I can determine my own pace.
I get excellent feedback from Marije.

In the gallery below I publish all the works that I think are finished and that I am still working on, with the most recent first. A new version of the most recent works will therefore be regularly recorded, until the work is completely to my liking.

community "vreemde kwasten"

In the autumn of 2019 I ended up with a group of painters through a course in IJsselstein.
After two years we 'started for ourselves' and now we meet weekly to paint for a morning.
We give each other assignments and help each other further. I do things here that I wouldn't easily pick up on my own.
It is very stimulating for me.

In the gallery below I publish all the works that I think are finished or that I am still working on. The most recent come first and can be replaced by better versions.

I have regularly drawn or painted in the past, usually during holidays.
