Ever since I was little I enjoyed drawing people; portraiture is now one of my main painting topics. it is endlessly fascinating to paint the human face. I do not fool myself in thinking I can paint the inner deeper soul of someone (not even myself) but I paint what I see in the best way I can. I plan out a painting in mood, lighting, colouring and compostion in the hope of evoking certain associations. Still, people often see things in my paintings I never thought of. Again, the human face has endless sides to it and it is a fantastic subject to explore in paint.
