Daniel Van der Putten
Daniel Van der Putten was born in a small farming village near Leyden in Holland. Initially he worked for his father in the family horticulture business but found that his desire to paint was too strong to ignore. This desire and ability was most likely inherited from his mother and aunt. The latter being a professional portrait artist who exhibited mainly in Holland and America. On a visit to Australia, Daniel met his Scottish wife and on their return went to live in Scotland. They worked together from the outset, researching and studying various techniques of painting and in particular those of the Great Dutch Masters. This encouraged Daniel to focus on observations within the natural landscape wherever he travelled.
Daniel was particularly inspired by the British landscape and consequently shortly after moving to England became a full-time painter. With a desire to depict the British landscape in its differing seasons, Daniel’s paintings reveal a unique style of his own. He is interested in showing the vast array of colour, light and shadow that appear in nature and his detailed technique reaches perfection in his treatment of skies and trees.
An artist of international reputation, Daniel’s work has been shown in London, Scotland and most notably The Royal Institute of Oil Painters. He has also held one-man exhibitions throughout England, Canada, Taiwan and the United States of America.
The paintings of Daniel Van der Putten consistently prove to be a source of enjoyment for private collectors all over the world. Forest Gallery is pleased to offer bespoke framing options and commissions. Please contact us for more information.
