Today my portraits of two brothers were accepted and taken home by their parents. These young men made me very happy by their presence in my studio. They talked openly and willingly about their lives, asperations and occupations. Then the work began. I continued the start by interpreting from photos, not my favorite way of painting. Because of their strong characters I could easily conjure up their presences. I kept going until I got what I wanted: moving paint in tones and forms corresponding with personality. Thank you Thijs and Sjoerd.
Sorry. I will have to get help to get the photos up.
