Coloured compositions by Ad Verberk

Ad Verberk (1952) is an autodidact painter. He has been active in painting for about 30 years. At high school he drew and sketched a lot, but his first real paintings were in oil from around 1980. Verberk started in the style of realism. The work from his early period consists of, often local, landscape pieces from his birthplace Oisterwijk and colorful flower still lifes.

Lanscape paintings
In the mid-eighties he was gripped by the hard life of Brabant and that is reflected in his work. In a smooth impressionist style he painted hard-working workers, Brabant farms, orchards and heath. In this period he also started painting many series of gnarled pollard willows in different styles. His many landscape paintings are diverse and cover all seasons, in which he has a predilection for the winter landscape.
Still lifes
In addition to Brabant's work, Verberk also painted in the style of surrealism in the 1990s. Nowadays he mainly focuses on painting still lifes. His unique compositions with ceramics in art deco style are characterized by clean lines and bright colors. In contrast to his landscapes, which are often painted outside, his still lifes are finely worked out in the studio.
Working method
When Verberk makes a painting, this often begins with a sketch on paper. He then transfers the sketch to panel or canvas and then starts to build his underpainting in shades of gray. After that he lets the underpainting dry thoroughly and the whole will then glaze with transparent layers of paint, so you get deep and fine colors.
