Daucus carota on sea green
SOLD - This painting Daucus carota (wild carrot) on sea green by Dutch artist Maartje van den Noort is a dive into the beauty of delicate lace like flowers. “I am mainly a painter in a drawing way. I like to work with natural pigment that dissolves easily in water. I work in phases, since the background has to be good first. I like it when it is thin and translucent, but that can take quite a while because I apply several layers of paint. Sometimes a background is only good after ten layers, sometimes after just one.”
Maartje van den Noort lives and works in Amersfoort. She graduated from the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam in 2006 and has been making beautifully refined drawings, paintings and graphics ever since. Her monumental tapestries are woven at Textielmuseum in Tilburg.
