The Earring, oil/canvas, 40x50cm
Hi, my name is Dick Tulp.
I work as a professional painter and sculptor. Admiring and studying my great examples, I try to find my own path in traditional painting and sculpting. Always on the lookout for something that touches me by it's beauty, something that might lift us up in some way.
Creating portraits I like most, every new face contains the adventure of a unexpected and surprising encounter.
Painters I mostly admire are Diego Velasquez, Frans Hals and John Singer Sargent. Favorite sculptor? Auguste Rodin.
