Watercolors by Dutch artist Marjolein Bastin are a real cure for depression and blues!
Her watercolors are light, warm and soothing, with lots of details to look at. The paintings show an abundance of spikelets, wildflowers, insects, birds and mice. A sort of suburban sunny mood!
Marjolen works in an office with large windows or in her garden, where she feeds squirrels and birds.
She was born in the middle of the last century in the city of Loenen aan de Vecht (Netherlands), and is not only an artist, but also the author of children's books. The peak of popularity came in the sixties, but even now she is very famous. Surely you have met the work of Marjolen Bastin in the form of postcards and calendars, and those who like to embroider are happy to use the schemes of the artist's paintings.
I hope you enjoy watching her cute and kind illustrations too.
