Bernadet Rijvers

My paintings emerge from a deep connection to the landscape, as I experience in my surroundings. The peace and space, the colours and the light amaze and inspire me.

Trees, open spaces and water play an important role in my landscapes. To me, it is not about a true-to-nature representation of an observation, but about an interpretation guided by my intuition. Every time it is an adventure to experiment with the material, colours and composition. 

The paintings are very open, as if the beholder can enter the landscape.  The lively and loose brushwork leaves room for interpretation.

I enjoy showing my paintings in exhibitions and I love sharing my experience with painting in courses and workshops. 

If you have any interest in buying/renting or a course/workshop, please feel free to contact me.
