About the work

We rented a little beach house for my birthday weekend. I saw a typical dutch sky, clouds moving fast. It was very cold, but we were happy when the sun came out! Because of the strong wind, I painted in the beach house. Does that count as ‘en plein air’?

About the artist

Marieke Ackerman has been drawing and painting since she was very young. She was inspired and encouraged to do so by her mother and grandfather. Marieke  followed various painting courses at Doet Boersma, James Tatum and Roos Schuring. 

Marieke finds her inspiration in nature. Her work covers a wide spectrum of landscapes. Marieke looks for light or beautiful colours to paint. In her paintings she tries to capture the essence and ambience of the location. 

Marieke's painting style is loose and she paints with clear brushstrokes. Since Marieke started painting with oil paint, she paints her paintings wet in wet (alla prima). She loves painting en plein air (outdoors). Marieke likes to paint seascapes. It seems simple: you have sky, water, beach and sometimes people. But simple is not the same as easy. There are not many details to hide behind. Marieke also paints places in her surroundings. Marieke lives in Driebergen.
