Van Vegchel (1964)
Water-colour has a character and a wilfulness that you find in few other painting techniques. With water-colour I can produce powerful and wayward images. For me, a good painting contains the following: creativity, imagination and control of the technique.
Comment of a client:
I also learned a new watercolour technique in New Zealand: lifting dry watercolour paint. This method gives new opportunities for creating abstract paintings.
Back in my studio I made series of watercolour paintings (with this new painting technique and my sketchbook). When I look at it, it gives me that special feeling of the moment on which that small detail caught my eye out there. After working for halve a year with this theme, the watercolour paintings were showed in a exhibition.
