My very talented neighbor Antoinette MH Brandenburg painted one of my favorite places in the world. It was so much fun how she included me in the whole process and I am very impressed by her skills.
Now I can look at this view from my living room. ❤️ Sweden in my heart.
My name is Antoinette MH Brandenburg(1959) I live and work in Rotterdam.
My studio with the name “Ut Spoort Niet” is in an old building which used to be a train station.
From a very early age my mother taught me how to draw, to model, to embroider, to work on wood and to paint.
After high school I decided to go to nursing school and made a career in health care and education.
I choose not to go to the art academy. I wanted to develop myself in drawing and painting.
And that is what I did.
The result was in 1995 my first exhibition, selling my first painting. To a student of the art academy!
In 2006 I was ready for two masterclasses in Florence Italy.
That was the FAA Florence Academy of Art (portrait en figure painting).
For me a personal achievement. There was a complete change in my painting technics and working process.
I use a classic palette with red white black and yellow colors. If necessary completed with other colors.
Constructed with several layers of paint this is now part of my working process.
A long process but with excellent result in perspective and light and dark contrasts.
