Started to paint abstract again (1)

I finally have the time and peace of mind to start painting again! For starters I created a series of three abstract paintings in quick succession. I love the abstract expressionists, especially Clifford Still, Richard Diebenkorn and Willem de Kooning. The last one is my absolute favorite.

Two other paintings are nearly finished. I will share them when they are.

I am very interested in your comments on the paintings. Please let me know what you think!

Indian summer in Scheveningen

A couple of weeks ago I went for a walk around the harbour of Scheveningen (Holland) in the beginning of the evening. Despite the fact that it was already September, the temperature was still around 20 degrees Celsius. The light was beautiful; it reminded me of one of my favorite paintings: “North atlantic light” by Willem de Kooning.

I decided to take some pictures with my Olympus OM-D E-M10 in combination with the standard kit lens: the Olympus Zuiko Digital 14-42mm 1:3.5-5.6 ED. Although I love this camera and lens, given the limited amount of light I knew the noise level would be quite high and therefore a  faster lens or a bigger sensor camera would have been ideal. However I learned a while ago that the best camera there is, is the one you have with you…
