For decades, a group of Flamingos have been hibernating in the waters of Zeeland in the Netherlands.
This colony breeds just across the border in Germany, near Groenlo in the Zwillbrocker Venn.
After the breeding season, between October and April, the Flamingos can be found in the Netherlands.
In the Lauwersmeer, the IJsselmeer, but also in the province Zeeland.
A source of inspiration to make a series of paintings, with Flamingos.

It's Flamingo Time
 

From the year 2000, Kees van de Wetering has been working on a series of special works of art with Flamingos as a theme. This is the first Flamingo painting.

A large interior shop in the Netherlands has had this painting made into an impressive meter-high net curtain and taken it up for sale. A collector's item that sold out quickly.

The painting is built up in several layers and has a grainy rough structure, which gives it a special appearance.

FRAGMATIC ART

Kees van de Wetering's paintings arise from the idea of ​​translating the subject into areas of image and color.
By sketching in advance with pencil and colored pencil, the image is created, which is characterized by

forms that playfully stagger and complement each other.

A large number of works from drawing to watercolor and then paintings with acrylic paint are created

in a fluid movement.

Kees van de Wetering creates his own color palette from the primary colors.

 

 

Translating the subject into various techniques, from sketch to watercolor to an acrylic painting, provides excellent opportunities to explore and improve shapes and colors.
 

This watercolor served as the basis for the large acrylic painting Flamingo Family.

Fresco

A fresco mural commissioned in Switzerland, was the reason for these large canvases with Flamingos as the subject.

Painted in one layer with very thin acrylic paint and fine brushstrokes, resulting in monumental paintings with a beautiful contrast between light and dark.
