A beautifully idyllic landscape by Dutch painter Jan Bogaerts.

Bogaerts, who was active in the early to mid 20th century, is better known for his wonderfully tactile and contemplative still life paintings. I find his landscapes carry a similar sense of timelessness and serenity.

  1. I can’t stop looking at this, the colors are so beautiful! What do you think was on his pallet? I think ultramarine, blue and burnt sienna, possibly yellow ocher? So soft.

  2. Hard to say, Carol. I think you could use the colors you mention. If I were to try a master study with wider color choices, I would start with Yellow Ocher as you suggest. I might substitute Raw Umber for the Burnet Sienna to get those light neutralized gray-browns, Pyrrole Red for the flowers, Cad Yellow Lemon, and maybe Cerulean Blue to get those light yellow-greens.
