Paintings convey the expressions well and the big bum! No wonder it’s looking over the shoulder 🙂

Simply beautiful artwork Oh talented one.
Horse: “Does this painting make my bum look big?”

27 10 2009

Really good paintings!
I take it you don’t believe drawing is forbidden then?
you seem to like horses.

from what little i know of Aafke, i seriously doubt she thinks anything is forbidden … great job Aafke, love them all, well the big bum is a bit too much for me, but wonderful all the same

I do not understand where the light is coming from in the second picture.

Beautiful! Love the first one.

Lat, the whole horse was big! 😉

Tony, ”Yes that painting makes your bum look big”!!!

Aerinndis, I do whatever I like! And yes, good guess! I quite like horses! 😉

Radha, Wow, you know me too well… although… I think pedophelia should be forbidden, meddling into and telling other people how to live their lives and what to believe should be forbidden.

Solomon2 the light is coming from above, and there is a second reflection from the sand. Actually the sketch I made for that painting was at the same time as the first painting, where you see Krabbe, in the paddock. There was a very strong sun, it was midday and the white sand reflected a lot of light.

Achelois, I like the first one too!

Totally aaammmaaaaziiing Afke. I hope you realize how great the paintings are! There is much life an expression. And the colours, so cohensive too.

Above with a reflection? I’ve actually printed out your painting to understand it better, but I don’t. Doubtless because there is no clue to that in the background – you’ve eliminated the glare that way, yes? Your brush stroke pattern suggests to me that you hold your arm still and paint with your wrist and fingers. That makes you a miniaturist in my book. Regular paintings I can gauge the market value of, but not minatures. However, a series like a tryptych – same size, background, lighting, but with horse in different positions – that would be rather exciting, don’t you think?

Have you shown your portfolio to some real horse enthusiasts, like racehorse owners? That odd species enjoys different ways of viewing their favorite form of flesh – you could get access to prize-winning subjects plus an opportunity to move in fashionable circles.

Yes, thevery bright sun from above, as it was after midday, and the very white sand throwing a strong reflection from the bottom as well.

With these very small paintings I certainly use my fingers and wrist, they are only 20 cm across, slightly too large for a miniature though. but very small.

I can’t believe you came up with a triptich! I have just yesterday brought the canvasses for a tryptich! I love doing them!
This is like mindreading!
I had no idea you were so very clever on art!

There are no real racehorse owners in the Netherlands. And the Netherlands is not really a good country for art. that’s why I’m writing the blog in English. i want to show my work in America and the Middle East.
So yeah that is a very good idea.

You should visit my art-blog where I show more work and more talk about art as well.

WOW… I can only say wow.

Btw.. do you do human portraits too?

I would love your interpretation of Saladin on a horse!

Thanks for posting these, Aafke – they are just beautiful. My fave is the first one.
