You can think of:
My strength lies in painting the personal and characteristic, in an environment characteristic of the portrait (s) portrayed.
The basis is that I would like to hear the background of the subject that you want to have a painting made of. So that you get something that best reflects your idea.

This painting was created on the basis of a few thoughts that the customer had about color, subject and size. There was a lot of freedom in this assignment, which was exciting at the same time. At those moments I am happy that I can zoom in on someone's wishes and that is almost always the case. After a pencil sketch, this is further elaborated with an occasional intermediate phase to coordinate.
This assignment came from my father who, like me, is a big fan of Coltrane. A nice journey that we have taken together to achieve this result. As (almost) always I start from a black-and-white image and I think of background etc. in order not to make a copy of a photo and not to be distracted. become the photo but let the painting take the lead.
For a Bob Dylan fan I have been able to make this beautiful assignment, an image that appeals to me enormously because it is not immediately the Dylan that everyone knows. Here he is working on his iron sculpture: 'Heavens Door', an image that was later also used for his own Whiskey brand.
I have chosen this photo with the client because he is one with his work here. The work has been received with great enthusiasm and is now hanging somewhere in Sweden. Unfortunately I had not made any pictures of the intermediate phase.
