PAINTER Christel Van Hemelrijck
I work primarily with water mixable oil paint and I often use a palette knife. Texture, colour and movement are used to translate my passion from emotion to canvas.
Every work is an expression of a feeling, a thought or a memory.
My numerous stays in Crete were the inspiration for quite a number of blue and red paintings. The peaceful blue sea and vibrant skies entice me to paint. The chance encounters and passionate conversations give me the need to express myself through colour.
