Leo pors was born in Rotterdam in 1952 and took up painting in 1985, mostly in oil. His earlier work was in the Dutch style of the Hague School but later he began painting more in the Dutch Romantic style. It was about 15 years ago that he changed from painting landscapes to still lifes. Having studied the Dutch masters, he had to learn for himself the technique of building up thin layers of paint, starting with the background, so that the brush work is not seen and the objects stand out.
In each of his still lifes there is a balance of composition, form and colour and a regard for the detail, whether it be a chip in the object or a droplet of water on the shelf.All Artists
