Painting, I just love it.

Am I good at it? That’s just a matter of opinion. I don’t care that much.

What I do care about is teaching people how to paint. For a number of years now I tell the participants of my painting courses: take a better look at art, yourself and the world around you. In my opinion, that is the only way to improve your painting skills. I started to use artists and their artwork as inspiration for lessons on ‘How to paint like…’ and also as an introduction for the participants to the world of art in all its forms.

My mantra is “Everybody can paint”, so You Too! I love it when the participants progress and get better at what they do. First things first. Painting with me is about: lower the bar, paint and have fun.

On this website (in Dutch for now) you will find instructional video’s about painting and how to look at art. Browse around and you can see images of paintings made by the participants of my painting courses. Those are from before my YouTube days.

Enjoy the video’s on this channel and take up your brush and join us on our journey.

Love to hear from you in the comments on YouTube, on this website or send me an email via the contactpage.
