Creating a painting of a Female Landscape is very different than making a photograph. In this great journey, Edwin feels the freedom to add his personal imagination and artistic interpretation. Like in photography, the model inspires him to paint - brushstroke after brushstroke - her beauty, sensuality and personality. Typically, she poses live, however, to reduce sitting time, Edwin also works from sketches and memory. Likelyness is important for him, however, he may decide to make changes to improve the composition, light and color. The challenge is to reflect skin in texture and colour. To achieve this as convincingly as possible, Edwin's works with self-made paint, which he prepares from traditional, genuine pigments accordingly to the methods of the Old Masters. By this, a new Female Landscape is born, Edwin's "hommage à la Femme"

The beauty, sensuality and personality of the model inspires Edwin to capture her feelings and emotions. Her personality intrigues the artist and the creative process towards a photograph, Edwin always experiences a nice artistic symbiosis where the model inspires the artist and vice versa. No matter if she is mysterious, dreamy, shy, introvert or extravert, her personality and character are the basis for the final artwork as this makes every model unique. To express the softness of her shapes and her nude skin, Edwin has a strong preference for printing the final artwork in black and white. Despite his focus is on the creation of female nudes, Female Landscapes, he also works with masculine models, where he likes to express again character and personality.
