Marjo van der Burgt

Marjo van der Burgt was born in 1952 in a village in the south of the Netherlands where she still lives Some thirty years ago she took up painting seriously. She was attracted to realistic fine art painting. She was first taught by Jo manders an artist in Helmond. She then moved on to the Academy for Fine Arts  led by Peter Dillen in Veldhoven , where she learned the principles of perspective, the effect of depth, colour theory and knowledge of materials. To round off her training she went to Antwerp where she took private lessons from the Belgian fine artist Maarten Boffé. Marjo now works exclusively in oils on wood or canvas.

Learning the technique of fine painting is a slow process requiring a lot of patience. It not only involves a good technique but also an eye for composition. Marjo sets up the composition in her studio and makes a life-size drawing of the whole paying particular attention to how the light falls. She then applies the colours in several layers. As the drying is a long process she works on several canvases at the same time. One picture takes her about three months to finish. It is then put in a frame designed and painted by the artist herself to complement the colours in the painting.
