Villers la ville

House of the Animals



2 September 2022

For over a year I had been thinking about using the Villers-la-Ville Abbey, founded in 1146, as the main theme for a painting.
After site visits, notes and photos, I have now started working on this painting.

The intention is to get a lot of movement in this piece through the composition and the animals.
Given the imposing abbey, I opted for a larger format so that the whole scene makes impact.

In the above photo you can see that I apply the first layer of oil paint.
To be continued...

When you cross a pelican with a hummingbird, there is a good chance that you will get this result...
After painting the architecture I can start painting the animals.

One to see again

I made this painting 'Porcelain Boat' some years ago.
It still hangs in my studio and after all these years I still find it a fascinating work in terms of subject and color.

The frames used then were different from the frames I currently use. By the way, these frames are sold out and no longer available.
