I always have that feeling when the summer is burning on my head… “where is the winter?”
I work much better on winter. Not to mention I also eat much more!

WOW!….this is beautiful Hans. Love your skillful use of texture, as well as all those other essential bits that makes this scene really come together.

Beautiful. Very well-observed. I love the subtitle tone shifts in this color palatte. Bravo!

I visited Manila when I was a child– and the only thing I can remember was the heat. Even as a kid it was pretty unbearable. Now my parents want me to go back (visiting roots and all that), although I can honestly say I’m not in a huge rush. Maybe some day.

I like this painting for its simplicity. Your work reads really well for its simplified values and shapes. They also seem to have a soothing effect on the eyes.
