At the start of creating these small sized oil paintings, I just let my brush wander. I am not using any reference here. Faces in any shape or form just appear from inuition. I might use real photo's to study anatomy details, proportion or lightfall and apply some learnings to amplify plasticity. But my main focus lies in building an emotion.


In a free flow of creativity I try to tap into a space of surrender. I am not looking for expressing pain or anxiety, stress or fear. What I look for is an expression from within. Of who we are when we are truly quiet. 


Did you know: When observing the breath and bringing your mind to a focus, you can become aware of an endless peaceful space within you. 
This portrait of a man is a visualisation of the flow of energie I can imagine it to be in such moment.
