SimPly painting what i see


Welcome! My name is Philine van der Vegte, and I paint what I see. The paintings you will find here are fairly realistic, in a loose style. The subjects are close to home; small things from the kitchen or garden, farm animals and Dutch landscapes. I love to paint people and will gladly do a portrait for you.

I try to paint daily, and blog about this below. The daily paintings are usually small. Most paintings are for sale on  Etsy, or you can contact me directly if you see something you like.

Finished paintings of all 50 participating painters will be hung up in the festival tent immediately and are for sale. We're expecting great weather, so lots of sunny paintings this year!
