A Gentle Pastime created John Vander
When admiring his works, you can feel that John Vander knows his subject. His paintings reflect a real depth of feeling that is much more than just applying paint on a canvas.
John’s talent is obvious. However his fame is directly due to many of his original paintings being reproduced in prints, calendars and books throughout the world. Many homes and institutions have a John Vander print on their walls, making John’s works readily recognisable.
John’s paintings stand out from others artists because of their accuracy. Right down to the last chimney, window or verandah post. This accuracy is achieved not by using brushes but a set of pallet knives and carefully observing the particular scene over many years.
