- Ameland sketches
Based on the Ameland sketches, I am currently working on "translating" them into expressionist paintings. I am currently in my studio and have continued the series this morning. A few weeks ago, when I was on the beach and it was very windy, I noticed how quickly the colors and shapes were changing. Sand creating an extra layer of ground at a height of 10 cm and clouds that change every second. At that moment, the idea arose to represent the speed and dynamics of that moment in a series of sketches. So, not a neatly and accurately painted sea, but rough movements and spontaneous lines that showcase the dynamism of that moment. I create a series of paintings capturing the transition from a stormy sky to a clear, bright one. Some depict the moment just before a downpour, while others show the aftermath, with pastel shades and the vivid blue of the sky dominating the scene and casting almost no shadows. The paintings are not yet complete, and I am still working on them to reach full satisfaction. However, the initial layers of thick paint and spontaneous cloud formations, which can almost be considered abstract, have been applied. I purposely chose a low horizon in one painting to highlight the sky and a high horizon in another to accentuate the beach's dark shadows.
- Ameland exhibition in Nes
A week ago, I visited Ameland once again. It felt like coming home. This is such a wonderful island. The peace, the space, the beautiful beaches, and the diversity of birds and flora are a feast for the eyes and ears. I arrived quite early at the ferry terminal in Holwerd and because I still had plenty of time before the ferry departed, I went for a walk in the Holwerter salt marsh area. The sun had just risen and the colors were fantastic. The vastness of this nature reserve. Ebb and flow are crucial for the development of the salt marsh. The tidal water brings sand and clay particles, causing the salt marsh to increase in size and height. Creeks and channels play an important role in this, as these natural "blood vessels" allow seawater to penetrate deep into the area. I will definitely paint here sometime. With my car full of paintings, I head towards Gallery Philadelphia in Nes. Located in the heart of this cozy village is Gallery Philadelphia, housed in a beautiful historic building. Owner Esther Nagtegael is herself a talented Dutch goldsmith and visual artist, and has created many magnificent works of art and jewelry. In addition to her own outstanding art, her gallery features works by various artists in diverse styles and techniques. The gallery is definitely worth a visit. At the moment, there are about 10 artworks hanging in my gallery, all of them depicting Ameland seascapes. Several have already been sold. At the entrance, there is a large piece measuring 200x130 cm, a real eye-catcher when you step into the gallery. What I love so much about Ameland is, first of all, the island feeling. You are on an island and you have to make do with what this island has to offer you. There is no more. No traffic jams, crowds, busy shopping streets, or noise from people and city sounds. Although it can be busy here with vacationers, it is very quiet on the beaches and in nature. Peace, peace, and peace again, that's what draws me to Ameland. Fortunately, amidst work obligations, I was able to do some painting in 't Oerd, a beautiful nature reserve and primal landscape where you can enjoy a lovely walk in the midst of nature. I captured this landscape on a 60x40 cm canvas panel. Those were truly delightful moments. Are you nearby? Then visit the Philadelphia gallery in Nes and purchase a valuable piece of art.

WIMVANDEWEGE READ MORE Art embraces the beauty and imperfection of life. Man lives from his mind, thoughts, emotions, intuitions and desires. Art goes beyond words; it is a communication that can only be expressed through music and images. Studio Bunschoten-Spakenburg I feel free at the endless mass of water, the almost empty beaches with the occasional hiker or kitesurfer and the mighty cloudy skies.
