I worked for a year on a series of more than 30 small landscape paintings. The subject is the IJssel river near my house. The landscapes are all Plein-air painted, which means that I painted them on the spot in the open air. Here you can already see a few of them.
Artist Daniel Douglas (1984) finds his inspiration in the Dutch masters from the 17th century. They were the first painters to start telling a story with light. Douglas brought this theme into our modern age.
Since 2012 Douglas has been working on his series ‘New Light’, portraying people illuminated by the light of 21st century technology.
Daniel’s work could already be seen in different galleries and museums like: Gemeentemuseum Den Haag, Kröller-Müller Museum in Otterlo, Museum de Fundatie in Zwolle, Noord Brabants Museum, Jan Van Der Togt Museum in Amstelveen and Drents Museum in Assen.
Daniel Douglas does quick portrait paintings on location. These small portraits, made with oil color, are ready within one hour.
A unique experience for yourself or a great gift for friends or family members!
It’s possible to book Daniel Douglas as a live portrait painter for special events.
