Here is Theo's first oil painting for 2018, Dance To The End Of Love, a couple dancing the Tango in the shimmering nightlight, just completed in time for Valentine's Day.
For Theo creating watercolour sketches are an important step in the artistic process and journey when planning his oil paintings, see. Below you can see the difference between both media.
Speaking of artistic journeys what would you like to see more of this year? Doors and Landscapes, or figurative art which tells more of a story?
Each genre has its own followers, the doors are popular and considered photo realistic, often capturing a moment in time with light and shade. On the other hand the figurative art is popular, with the characters adding nostalgia and romance to the scene.

Thanks everyone for your kind words and thoughts on this perennial question.
Well, it looks like there is no straightforward answer and both genres are appreciated :-)
I love all your work Theo. The figurative art is pure escapism. Having visited Cyprus last year in october i am partial to the beautiful doorways and especial the street scene double pannel that was hanging in an Italian restaurant. Love love it. So, doors and street scenes then figurative
Thank you both for your hospitality and sharing your passion for your art.
Theo’s art is professional. His figures are exceptional. They are alive, bringing life and a story to each painting, allowing the imagination to travel. I love nostalgia in today’s difficult world. For this reason, I would like to see more of his figurative work. Congratulations Theo, and well done Anja for your support. Keep up the good work.
I think absolutely anything Theo paints is fabulous! Personally, I like his figurative art more, but I love all his work. Perhaps alternate, do a set of Landscapes/Doors/Nature and then Figurative? Like I said, anything Theo paints is exceptional to me. Good luck to both of you.
