‘Cockpit' 
Supermarine Spitfire, RAF, WWII
—new linocut, 20x20cm—

Every year in the Netherlands we celebrate Liberation Day on May 5 and for this occasion I made this linocut.

Liberation Day is the Dutch national holiday on which the liberation from the German occupation in the Netherlands in 1945 is celebrated annually.  On 5 May, the Netherlands will also reflect on the great value of freedom, democracy and human rights.

The Supermarine Spitfire was a British fighter aircraft.  The aircraft was put into production in 1938 by Supermarine Division, Vickers Armstrong Ltd.. The aircraft was used by the Allies throughout the Second World War, mainly by the RAF.

Plein Air Painting

Painting nature, experiencing the landscape, everywhere I go I always take my brushes, my oil paints and the weather with me

In My Studio

Painting with oil paints, on my journey to create things of beauty, giving colour and meaning to my world

Drawing

Rapidly sketching, freehand drawing, after nature, after live models, practicing my hand, mind and heart

My name is Dimitri Feenstra and I’m from the north of The Netherlands. I was born in 1977 in a small village named Hommerts which is in the province Friesland. As a small boy I always loved drawing and painting and my dream was to become a painter of art.

After my secondary school I went to the academy of Arts Minerva in Groningen where I graduated in 2001. After this I did my Master of Fine Arts at Frank Mohr Instituut, MFA Painting in Groningen and in 2003 I received my degree. I have been a professional and international artist for over 15 years now.

I mostly paint birds and landscapes in oilpaint, preferably to perception and often on panel. My method of painting appears sketchy and spontaneous. I choose to keep my compositions simple. The traces of the brushstrokes and the texture of the paint are visible and therefore important visual elements. For me it is more important to display the atmosphere and experience of a landscape than an exact, true-to-nature picture of the exact landscape.

I print my graphics in the Graphic Center in Groningen. If you like, you can buy some of my work through my Etsy store (you can find it on my ‘Shop’ page or click here), including original paintings as well as hand printed prints and cards. 

Besides the wooded area where I live, I love to paint the “Waddengebied”. The “Waddengebied” is a part of UNESCO’s World Heritage List and exists of a range of Frisian islands and a shallow body of water with tidal flats and wetlands. The skies are often impressive and the colour changings of the light are a big inspiration for me. I can often be found painting in this area.

My paintings are in galleries and private collections worldwide.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me through my ‘Contact’ page or send me an e-mail: info@dimitrifeenstra.nl

kind regards, Dimitri
