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!

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.
