Hans Versfelt is a painter in the Netherlands who paints from life, either plein air or on-location interiors.
His paintings have that kind of clear immediacy, tactile brushwork and fresh color that is often associated with the practice of painting on location.
Versfrelt portrays the landscape, canals, boats, farmland, towns, bridges and even windmills of the area with an eye to contrasts of light and shadow and appealing color relationships. He works with crisp, blocky brushstrokes, often defining a form with one or two strokes of color.
Though his website is in Dutch, English speakers and others can easily navigate the galleries linked on the left. The first four are “Pictures painted on Location” followed by two of “Drawings”, two of “Portraits and Interiors” and one of “Portrait drawings”. The others are “Contact”, a “CV” and a link to Versfelt’s blog. (The link to a page of links is unfortunately broken.)
Non Dutch speakers can also try Google Translate (English).
Versfelt’s blog isn’t extensive, but still has works of interest.
