This drawing technique with a digital pen on an iPad works like drawing and painting. Marlies constantly missed this combination in oil painting, but also in drawing with colored pencil. The only material that comes close to both effects is drawing with pastels.
After many years of material research, learning to work digitally became her passion.
The process of digital painting is just as intensive and time consuming as that of oil on linen. In a drawing program you can build up the work in layers, which makes your options endless and challenging. The result can be printed on different surfaces.
Exploring the inspiring work of old masters is an ongoing process of looking back and creating. A challenge to bring both timelines together and to give them their own look.
