About the work

This painting I painted plein air in 2017. Because of the use of colour it looks a bit abstract.

‘Reed at lakeside’ is one of three paintings that received the most votes from the public in the National Atelier’s landscapes competition 2021. One voter commented: “I find the purple touch in the water a refreshing choice. The light and dark of the reed with the blue water in between gives a nice depth. It’s a nice serene image.”

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.
