Paintings by Jeanette Olyhoek

Jeanette Olyhoek is a Dutch "en Plein air" oil painter. Most often from the dunes and the sea near Wassenaar, The Netherlands. But she also paints at every beach in the vicinity, such as Katwijk, or Zeeland, The Netherlands and Normandy, France. You will also see a few forests and some landscapes that almost become abstract.

Jeanette also sculpts, using the Waist Direct method, a method in which you let yourself be guided by the stone and therefore never know exactly what will arise. En Plein air means Jeanette stood on the beach she was painting. She painted for hours until it was done, capturing the moving nature of the beach, waves and clouds. It is a lively seascape. Jeanette uses her sculpting techniques of intuitively following the material until there is balance. The final painting is not pre-emptively decided. She takes her material to the dunes or forests. There she uses her painter's eye, demarcate a piece of nature, and she paints hours to capture that small moment in space and time. She keeps painting until there is a balance in each of her paintings. When she paints she creates a work intuitively with only determining the colours pre-emptively. Continuing to create until everything comes into balance. Balance in each composition, as understood as a sculptor, is evident in each of her paintings.

About the paintings by Jeanette

Jeanette at Gallery Sorelle Sciarone will mainly be known as the "en Plein air" painter. She is also an avid sculptor. You will find her oil paintings of coastal and forest paintings from The Netherlands. 

 

You can recognize her work, by her ability to capture the balance of the moving elements like the wave, wind and clouds with a thick impasto oil paint. Reminiscent of the Impressionist painters of the early 20th century.

 

Jeanette uses the technique she learned from sculpting in her paintings. The Waist Direct method, a method in which you let yourself be guided by the stone and therefore never know precisely what will arise. En Plein air means Jeanette stood on the beach she was painting. She painted for hours until the painting is finished, capturing the moving nature of the beach, waves and clouds. It is a lively seascape. Jeanette uses her sculpting techniques of intuitively following the material until there is balance. The final painting is not pre-emptively decided. She takes her material to the dunes or forests. There she uses her painter's eye, demarcate a piece of nature, and she paints hours to capture that small moment in space and time. She keeps painting until there is a balance in each of her paintings. When she paints, she creates a work intuitively with only determining the colours pre-emptively—continuing to paint until everything comes into balance. 

 

 

Jeanette paints come rain or shine for several hours in nature. She has had several art teachers but is an autodidactic artist. Which means she learned to paint outside the academy and has been taught by herself and several other artists. 

 

Jeanette signs her work: "Sebas" and the year. Named after the successful gallery she started, which she decided to close because there was no more time to create art. Jeanette sculpts and paints.
