Astrid Ritmeester (@astridritmeester)
Astrid Ritmeester is a Dutch realist portrait artist whose paintings rely on 17th Century Dutch and Flemish techniques, but whose background in theater costume design adds a theatrical touch to her bright, contemporary portraits. Ritmeester seeks to draw the viewer’s attention to the subject’s eyes, skillfully using subtle, loose brush strokes with a gifted eye for vivid colors, contrasting values, and beautiful soft edges.
