Scheepsvaarthuis/Shipping House

A painting of a section of the rooftop of one of Amsterdam’s most iconic buildings. In the style of the Amsterdam School (inspired by the Art Nouveau movement) in 1912 architect Van der Mey was appointed by six shipping companies who had joined forces to build a shared head office, intended to exude splendour and strength, from where they can sell tickets for voyages by sea to the Dutch East Indies, Africa and other destinations. This well adorned building is now the 5 star Grand Hotel Amrath.

In answer to an often-asked question;
I have painted outside, but find it is seldom without it’s drawbacks.
It is full of distractions, the pesterings of man or beast
and the ever-changing sky and shadows.
Therefore I take my own photos for reference, only occasionally make sketches and conduct them (often from accumulated reference) in my studio.
Many of my viewing positions are also rather difficult to paint from.
What is more; oil paints simply do not dry quickly enough for the sponanuety of the scenes I wish to capture. Trusty little camera at my side …
In the end I render them as loosely as if I were sketching that moment,
in all it’s glory, in full colour.
