Have a look at my latest work. Three new watercolours picturing well known Dutch ships of the 50ties! From left to right:


1. Ms Willem Ruys of the Koninklijke Rotterdamse Lloyd, in time especcialy built for the journeys to the Dutch Indies from Rotterdam
2. Ms Zaanland of the Koninklijke Hollandse Lloyd, often seen on the route to South America from Amsterdam.
3. Ms Rotte of the NV Houtvaart, but here seen as the time-charter for the K-Line of Tokyo. (Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha Ltd)

Since my youth I have been practising the art of painting as a hobby. The themes of my paintings are based on the maritime history of the passenger and merchant marine. My desire is, via the Dutch merchant marine and also the English merchant marine and tug boat history, to keep the maritime history of the 50's and 60's alive. My aim is to reach the historical correctness of the maritime subjects of my paintings and to show them in spectacular environments by playing with the colours or to show them in a particular way. The two techniques I am using are painting in oils or watercolour.
Well, have a look and judge for yourself and you are of course wholeheartedly invited to give a reaction in my guestbook.

Thanks for your visit!
