Congratulations Maarten Berkers

Jury about the nominated pictures:

Maarten Berkers "Child playing and discovering" (1ST PRICE 2015)

This picture depics in total what plein-air painting is! On the painting you see the idea of the artist, a child playing with the sand and discovering the world. But the model is not there as a model, and goes his own way, running away from the scene on the painting. It also depics the circumstances of the day, sunny but cold and windy. The artist has to overcome all these difficulties and must go on to show us on the painting what he or she has seen. 

Sebastaan Kool "Jos Leurs" (2ND PRICE 2015) 

 There are only 3 to 4 colors in this picture, which is often also in very good paintings. It captures an experienced master artist, which one can see from the easy look on the artist face and relaxed hand with brush.

Below Sebastiaan Kool with the painting box he won.

Peter Duinker 1 (3RD PRICE 2015)

The composition and colors of this photo are amazing! The red of the flowers and car. The sheep clouds drifting above the artist head, and creating different shadows / lights every second. It's indeed what all could see that particular moment and is saved for ages on different paintings. It also show the energy of this panter, being busy with 2 painting at the same time, using his technological experience of the painting materials and drying effects of wind and sunlight.

12th May 2015
