Tulip Garden with Windmill

Acrylic on board, 20 x 15 cm:


Another on the Dutch theme. I notice once again a problem I have had with acrylics in the past: it is somehow extremely difficult to get the colors to reproduce properly in a digital photo. I have no idea why this should be so, or why the problem is worse with some mediums than with others.

Tulip Field with Windmill

I have been busy with all manner of administrative details, and battling it out with properly formatting my latest book for print (and no end in sight yet, due to incomprehensible technical issues). But I made time for  quick painting, this one in acrylics for a change. It's a medium I have something of a love-hate relationship with, so I return to it every now and then, we're blissfully happy for  a while, then we start fighting again and I walk out, swearing never to return.

Gnome Alert (3)

And yet another batch of illustrations for my upcoming children's story The Garden Gnome's Journey. This is the lot, I think; still have to do a cover picture in color. Barring any unexpected troubles, the book aught to be available soon.







My other book, a youth adventure novella titled The Ten Horns, is available here:
