INSPIRATION FOR MY HORTUS BY NIGHT CANVASSES
On January 7 2019 I visited the Hortus by Night in de Hortus Amsterdam. And my year could not have started any better! I was totally enchanted by the fairy tale magic created by all the different coloured lights shining on the plants. It make me feel like I was off on some other worldly adventure. And it made me realise that in a different light all bets are off.
Back home I started making some sketches and soon I started painting. A couple of months later I ended up with a total of 12 canvas originals. It was the first time I had created so much art in such a short period of time. I loved every minute of it!
Afterwards I decided to split the series in two: Hortus by Night 1 and 2. The first series captures the fairy tale magic I experienced in the garden that night. While the second series explores colourful plants in moonlit greenhouses.
SPECS OF THESE CANVAS ORIGINALS
For these six canvas originals I used oil paint and ink. All six paintings are 75 x115 cm / 23.5 x 45.3 inch and come unframed. But of course, if you’d like yours framed, please contact me so we can discuss your preferences.
