Sunrise Snow – Color Notes

Sunrise Snow – Color Notes

Very few people know I was a photorealistic painter a long long time ago.
You might understand therefore I don’t look for ‘the photorealistic’ in the details. But quite in the opposite. I often like the balance between the simplified and the less says more ‘style’. I dislike the word ‘style’. Seems something like clothes, but you can’t wear a ‘style’ but many painters think so.

A style will grow on you over time. You might not even have control over this I think. Don’t look for a style. Don’t chase it. Chase beauty instead and your style will be there.

    I can’t believe that you were once a photo realist? Your work seems to be such a departure, as in this very abstract and beautiful painting. Love the “departure” it does you well!!

      When I painted photo realistically I already painted for about 25 years. So it wasn’t a departure. Just a crossing. The aim to be able to. And when you can – the fascination might end. :) If I had not passed the photorealistic path I might have just turned there now :) But I find my fascination elsewhere now. I do believe less is very much more. Also: every painter has their own search. The trick is to -listen- to that inner voice/search. Then you’ll never get bored :)
