A wall of paintings

 One of my favorite Dutch galleries is De Twee Pauwen Gallery in The Hague, situated in the old centre of the city. I’ve been working with them since 2006 and since 2007 they hosted a number of my solo showings, the most recent in May this year. They specialize in large sizes, one of the few venues in the Netherlands that still do.

After having completed the collection for the May exhibition, I felt like something completely different. And now I got my own wall of tiny paintings…

When I feel like trying something new, I often fall back on smaller sizes. This time I wanted to experiment with a medium that was rather new to me, Liquin Light Gel, by Winsor and Newton. Great stuff, especially for glazing.  It took me some time to get used to it. I found it hard to handle at first. But after using it in some of my small panels I can’t say anything else but: great stuff.
