A painting by Dutch artist Niels Schouten called 199 – Paard van Marken. The size is 80 x 100 cm. The technique is acrylic on canvas. On this painting, you see the lighthouse of Marken (which is named ‘Paard van Marken’, meaning horse of Marken and was built in 1839). An iconic building from a village located north of Amsterdam on the Markermeer.
“A wide landscape with a lot of space evokes a strong desire for freedom”
To paint Niels mostly uses a putty knife and a palette knife. Sometimes he adds a few transparent layers of paint, to make the colours deeper.
My paintings can be described as abstract landscapes. I always start with a preconceived plan but go to work intuitively. Action and reaction. There always coincidences happening while you work and it influences the painting. Read more about Niels Schouten in our Meet the artist section: dutch-accent.nl/niels-schouten.
