Ralf Heynen belongs to a new generation of fine arts painters. With a sharp eye for detail and realism he manages to capture the essence of movement, be it in ripples of water or a child's complete focus on a new found treasure. He does so by using light and tonality as well as very fine brushstrokes. As a result, the texture of a dress is such that you can almost 'touch' it while the shimmering sunlight on a skirt gives the impression of being almost transparent. Ralf Heynen provides the viewer with a presence so real, it is as if you could smell the sea and feel the breeze on your skin. His focus of attention is on children and adults in water scenes, somehow remote, calm and removed from the hustle and bustle of city life.
Ralf Heynen (1978) is a fine arts painter from Nijmegen, the Netherlands. Despite the first impression of a sophisticated and detailed picture, his technique is based upon light and tonality and painted with a distinct brushstroke.
