"I paint daily life, things that inspire and excite me. All the paintings are small, making it easier for people to buy and collect them from all over the World. Creating these small treasure brings great joy to my life - Painting is what I was meant to do in Life!
I hope you enjoy them as much as I do."

Robin painted "A Cityscape of Amsterdam II" with one of the canals and building in the background featured in the sunlight. He brought the original version, on a piece of canvas, for everyone to see. He painted the new version on a larger piece of stretched canvas.

We were treated to an endless stream of wisdom and tips about all manner of painting, whether in oils or acrylics, large or small.

View the photos in the gallery to see how he progressed through the demonstration.
