It is possible to have a portrait painted or drawn. The reason for a portrait is different for everyone. My basic options are detailed below, please contact us for more specific wishes and costs.
Horses & pets & people
Horses & pets
The bond we have with animals is incredibly special. This is almost impossible to explain to someone who has never experienced this.
The connection you make with your animal from your heart is special. Your animal means so much more to you than people sometimes realise. A portrait of your animal will truly bring you lifelong pleasure. Especially when it comes to that one where you never want to forget your bond together.
Since 2016 I have taken up portraying people again. Partly due to the order from Cavalry Honorary Escort with their order for a portrait of our king together with a horse from the royal stables. And through the lessons of my teacher Paul van Ernich and colleague Yvonne Heemskerk. Both former participants of Stars on the Canvas (Dutch art tv show).
Taking up portraits of people has created a beautiful movement in my work and technique. Participating myself in Stars on the Canvas has greatly confirmed this inspiration for me.
- Personal contact
In this first contact we discuss your wishes, I answer your questions, I give my vision and we make agreements.
- Confirmation of order
I record the agreements made in an order confirmation.
I would like to meet you personally. My preference is to get to know the person(s) or animal(s) who are the subject of the painting. To gain as much emotional and character information as possible. A photo shoot is also an option. If this is not possible, good images and your story are even more important.
I work in my studio based on a photo. I involve you from start to finish during the process from proposal to result.
- Revealing of your commission
When the painting is ready and it is time to hand the portrait over to you, we will make an appointment in my studio. It is always a special moment. Shipping is also possible on request.
