Todays painting started out as a scene in a bookstore, but I wasn't satisfied with the background. Even after making several adjustments it still didn't please me. Then I did something drastic, I gave the background a dark color leaving my figure bathing in light.

It now looks like the figure is standing on stage performing. It also reminds me of the wonderful works by Caravaggio or Rembrandt. That satisfies me for sure!

kind regards, Gerard

Commonplace events and ordinary objects. My hyperrealism paintings show a deep love for the modern human in contemporary city scenes.
