Until May 2017 I have been 'on tour' in the Scottish Highlands to get inspired for a new series of paintings.
See Facebook , look for "Renata van Rijsoort"  You can find these paintings also  in the chapter

Impression: Opening of the exhibition "de Schatkamer", 9-9-2017, Studio Dusseldorp Tilburg

Action painting live event

If you organize an event, you can invite me to paint an impression on the spot. Always different than any photo, cause it is never a momentum.


I offer a variety in workshop themes such as drawing animals, action painting, painting portraits from photo or life model, creative days outdoors.
For adults as well as for children there are numerous possibilities, also on demand. Please ask what I can do for you to lighten up your party or event.
At the moment no workshops are planned, I'll keep you posted by Facebook and website.


Portraits by order for children or adults have a separate section in the website where you can find more about the procedure, costs and options. Those are guidelines, every commission is different and I can help you better to decide when we can talk about it. In general, you can find portraits in acrylic in the section Portraits.
The conditions for animal portraits can be found in
Animals on canvas, as many assignments are already there.  The latest animal portrait is called "Highland calf"

When you intend to  give an order for a portrait that is based on photo material, like a memory portrait, I can accept those through internet and we can discuss conditions by email, Skype, whatsapp. Though I prefer a personal contact when possible. To have an impression of how someone lived, where and with whom helps to get the whole picture and that is necessary to create a good portrait. It is definitely more than just a painting.
To give an order for portraits that require a life session and/or photoshoot , please send me your request and we will see from there.
