The eye (het oog)

The eye (het oog)

Material: Oil on wood panel
Size: 24 x 24 cm

When I looked into someone's eye, it struck me that it resembled a sunflower and immediately triggered me to Vincent van Gogh. I then decided to paint it and honour the painting to Vincent van Gogh. I cut a piece off in order for the composition to improve.

Geboren in Eindhoven maar woon nu in Almelo. Ik ben autodidact en ik schilder sinds 2013. Ik ben nu op een punt gekomen waar mijn inspiratie komt uit het experimenteren. Het proces wordt nu belangrijker dan het eindresultaat van het schilderij.

Born in Eindhoven, currently living in Almelo, The Netherlands, I am considered an autodidact. I have been painting since 2013 and now at the stage of finding new inspiration by means of experimenting. The process is now becoming more important that the final painting.
