One of the first paintings done in 2017. This one is called One Cherry. My main goal here was to capture the shapes correctly and get a pleasing composition going with basically just one object. Quite a challenge! (SOLD)

Welcome to my website! Let me introduce myself. My name is Erik Franken. I'm a 32 year old Dutch artist, interested in painting in a realistic style similar to Sargent, Rembrandt and basically most of the old masters. I'm also selling my art as a means to afford the hobby and am available for commissions. Check out the contact page to see how to get in touch. The website is still under construction, still trying to find a style I like. So check back regularly for updates. Below you will find my latest updates. Also feel free to follow me on my social media channels linked in the top right corner!
