Dragons, flags, ships and a Peacock

Here some details of my 'Dragon Emperor' mural in museum De Prinsenhof in Delft.
Scroll down for an action photo of me painting the mural, in the Delft AD newspaper.

The Blue Revolution

I finished the large warercolour 'Dragon Emperor' mural for the Delft - Jingdezhen: The Blue Revolution exhibition. And the exhibition at De Prinsenhof started last Friday.
Adriaan Rees, me and the people of the museum have been working very hard to get everything finished on time.
We also moved my big vase "Perpetua Porseline" to her new location in the exhibition.

Below some pictures of the exhibition.

The 187 inch tall Dragon Emperor

Busy preperations for the exhibition Delft-Jingdezhen: The Blue Revolution, 400 jaar Exchange, which is starting next week. See my previous post:

And for this exhibition I am painting on the shalk walls of the very old Prinsenhof museum. This painting must be by far the largest watercolor that I've ever made, it's approximately 475 cm (187 inch) high.
On the first picture I am accompanied by the famous Dutch artists Hugo Kaagman and Tineke van Gils, who are also participating in the exhibition.
