  • Hi John – thanks for your comments. Pieter’s history is in Europe (Netherlands) but he migrated to Australia as a child in the 1960s. His father was a painter in the Amsterdam Cellars and tutored Pieter in the cross hatching and other impressionist techniques. Pieter adapted this to the Australian light. In one of his recent books he shows the old Dutch master style and how he changed the tonal values to suit the Australian light.
