Corner coffeeshop

"Corner coffeeshop"
8x8 inch / 20,3x20,3 cm
oil on stretched canvas

It was daytime and I passed this coffeeshop in Rotterdam where a man was sitting outside with a sigaret and a drink. You could see vaguely inside the shop.
Add the guys plastic bag, the flowers and bicycle and I saw all the ingredients I would love to paint in 1 painting.

Busy times in Brasserie Brothers

"Busy times in Brasserie Brothers"
6x6 inch
oil on gessobord
Not for sale
This is my favorite place to go and so close to home! I made this painting for friends who work there. They always move very fast so I had a couple of nights where I shot many secret pictures, they were all blurry :) A little memory helped me out to make this painting.

New years eve tree burning

"New years eve tree burning"
6x6 inch/ 15,2x15,2 cm
oil on gessobord
I made this painting inspired by the 'complimentary challenge' on dpw. The purples against the yellows of the fire made it really stand out. Also a bit of blue against orange and a dash of green against the red. Why stick with one set of complimentaries, right? Happy it didn't turn out like a palette of colors. Strange that I hardly used any umber, which I normally use abundantly in my darks. Fun challenge!
