Hans Groeneveld started painting watercolors in 2003.

Since then, he attended several watercolor workshops with great artists such as Greg Allen and Joseph Zbukvic.

He has also studied the great Dutch painters  Rembrandt, Vermeer, van Gogh, 19th century painters such as Israels, Schelfhout, and Vreedenburgh, being close to several museums with their paintings, a good way to learn.

His paintings show spontaneity and good simplification of the scenes.

Hans tells us “As you might notice my landscapes have – I admit it – a touch of romance. I can’t resist using watercolor as a medium to capture these wonderful places. Watercolor paint is a perfect means to do this. Its sensitivity combined with the speed of water provides the painter enormous spontaneity.”

He uses drawings and sketches as a basis for future watercolors but also practice outdoor painting.

One of his paintings (St. Nicolaas Church) was selected to be exhibited at the  Shanghai Zhujiajiao International Watercolour Biennial Exhibition 2010.

  2. Mooi werk maak je Hans ! Ik herken de stijl van Zbukvic er wel een beetje in maar op Rembrandt lijken is ook niet erg, en Zbukvic is toch een van de grootste in mijn ogen !
    Ik blijf je volgen ,
    Groet, Hannie
