Georgia,thank you so much for the compliments on my work !

Ben, Wonderful painting...great brush strokes, excellent colors between the brown, greens and golden onions, the amber wall behind them and the hard sculpted blues, greens, purples and black of stone shelf. Very fine composition. Stunning work. You are a true artist. cheers, georgia

Wonderful painting, Ben ! voted

Thank You ! I feel honoured !

Brilliant work! f/l

outdoor painting is joyful and challenging.

I see that in your painting. I understand your subjects and the simplicity in painting. When you see the way in the begining of outdoor with brushes... we can see the draft works of the painting day outdoor. Right?!

Ben Rikken replied:

If Y do understand your question wel : The outdoor drafts sometimes end up like finishad paintings . Set up as rendering of the atmosphere of the very moment, I choose tonality first( little or much contrast ) and then the palette : harmonic scales as used by Johannes Itten ( see clourscemes ) Does this make sense to You ?

good to comtemplate it and to learn how to do this!

Ben Rikken replied:

Hi Kim, thank You for the compliments ! I am trained as a painter in the Dutch traditional way of seeing ,and I learned to observe and render ordinary things in a classical manner ; among others things like bread, onions, fruits, classical plein-air landscape
