Below you find some examples of my paintings, a large example will open after clicking on the small image. I work with both acrylic and oil paint and the dimensions also differ per painting. These specifications are described for each work.
What remains the same for every painting is the joy with which I made it and the degree of detail and realism in the scene shown. I look forward to making a painting for you too!

McDonnell Douglas MD-11
The MD-11 was the successor to the DC-10. The aircraft made its first test flight on January 10, 1990, and in December 1990 Finnair was able to receive the first one. After the merger of McDonnell Douglas with Boeing, the decision was made to cease production of this aircraft type in March 2001. The last MD-11 intended for passenger flights rolled out of the factory in 1998. Two years later, the production of freight aircraft was also closed. A total of two hundred MD-11s were built.
KLM was the last airline in the world to use the MD-11 on regular intercontinental passenger routes. All aircraft of this type that are still flying now are used by freight and package carriers.

Lockheed L-749 (C121A) 'Constellation'
he Lockheed L-749 Constellation is the first Lockheed Constellation to regularly cross the Atlantic Ocean non-stop. Although similar in appearance to the L-649 before it, the L-749 had a larger fuel capacity, strengthened landing gear, and eventually weather radar.
The first civil customer for the L-749A was South African Airways but its largest customer was TWA, which had 26 L-749As; the last of these were not retired until 1967.
The painting shows PH-LDK of KLM Royal Dutch Airlines. A similar aircraft delivered to USAF January 1949 as C-121A 48-612 is preserved for display in the Aviodrome museum in Lelystad, the Netherlands.

Beechcraft 18 / T-7 (1943)
The Beechcraft model 18 was designed in accordance with the philosophy of the early thirties. This meant, among other things, that a modern twin-engine plane had to have a rudder aft of either engine, to improve the effectiveness of control. The maiden flight took place on January 15th 1937. Over 90% of all American navigators and bomb aimers who served in the war got their training on this type.
In 1950 the Royal Dutch Air Force took delivery of 28 T-7s. In KLu service the T-7s flew with the Gilze-Rijen instruction-group, the advanced flying training on twin-engine aircraft (AVOT) at Twente Air Base, the TRANSVA at Ypenburg Air Base and, later, with 334 Squadron at the latter base. In 1957 most of them were returned to their original owner.

Lockheed F-104G 'Starfighter'
The Lockheed F-104 Starfighter is a single-engine, supersonic interceptor aircraft which was extensively deployed as a fighter-bomber during the Cold War.
The Royal Netherlands Airforce Netherlands bought 95 aircraft built by Fokker, 18 of which were suitable for photo reconnaissance (RF-104G). As part of the Mutual Defense Assistance Program, the KLu received 25 aircraft produced by Fiat. The first two 'Starfighters' built by Fokker for the Royal Netherlands Air Force (KLu) were flown from Schiphol to the Vlb Twenthe on 12 December 1962.
On November 21, 1984, the last flight in KLu took place when five Starfighters, accompanied by an F-16, gave a final salute to the operational air bases, where this type had served for almost 22 years. The F-104G is the fastest aircraft that has ever flown with the Royal Netherlands Air Force.

Consolidated PBY-5A 'Catalina'
The Catalina PH-PBY was the oldest flying Consolidated PBY-5A in the world. The aircraft was hangared at Lelystad Airport in the Netherlands until early 2019 and was flown to the United States in May 2019.
Catalina PH-PBY, construction number 300 of the production line, was delivered on November 15, 1941. In August 1942 the Catalina participated in two attacks on German U-boats and one of them sunk. In total the Catalina managed to sink three submarines and with that it could be called the most successful patrol aircraft of the allied armed forces.
