Flowers and plants are a challenge, I like to give them my own twist when creating them.

Daisy's 2018 (negative painting) watercolour

A technique that consists of first painting the background and in this way showing the flowers to their full advantage without first painting them.

Wild roses 2018, watercolour

A second exercise in negative painting, it comes down to first painting the entire background so that the actual objects (here flowers) jump out of the painting as it were. Above all, it has nothing to do with negativity.

Blossoms from Borgloon 2019, watercolour

After a weekend of cycling in Borgloon we came home with numerous pictures on camera, it was obvious to cast this in a watercolour.

and also learning to dab the paint.

Tulip 2020 Oil Colour
For the first time in thirty years I painted with oil colours again. The flow and structure are still different than with acrylics. It took some getting used to

but with good materials you are already halfway.
