                  b.1974

                  Renso, who was born and brought up in Rotterdam, The Netherlands was already drawing and painting at the tender age of four. As far back as he can remember, his sole ambition was to be an artist. It was the natural world which most excited his interest. The overriding passion of this artist is to capture the mystical resonances of nature in the wild.
                  In order to understand and experience these wild habitats more profoundly, he is a regular traveller to the most inspirational places on this planet. Besides wildlife, Renso’s creative juices can also be stimulated by such details as a tuft of moss, a piece of bark, or the whimsical form of a tree.
                  ”In the seemingly commonplace, there often lies an unsuspected and fascinating beauty.”

                  He considers it a challenge to capture the true spirit of nature and wildlife. In the composition of his paintings, this wildlife artist pays a lot of attention to accurate draughtsmanship in the representation of animals. ”The anatomy just has to be right. Then I think it’s at least as important that the painting has life. I try to inject soul into my work.”

                  He paints in watercolor on board. First of all, water or a light colour-wash is applied with a sponge. Once dry, this makes the paint easier to work. This technique leads to truly amazing results. In Renso’s work, the hand of the artist is instantly recognisable. His paintings richly reward multiple viewing; the artist certainly does not reveal all his secrets at a stroke. A close study of his paintings yields up some surprising discoveries.

                  ”Like so many other artists, I have yet to paint my best work.” It is this self-criticism that spurs him on to keep tackling new subjects. Renso entertains the hope that his work as an artist will get people of all ages thinking and they will come to the realisation that the natural world must be protected.

                          To our Valued Customers

                           

                          During this time of crisis, when our lives are upended daily as new information is available, John Marzolf and the staff at the Broadmoor Galleries want to extend our heartfelt gratitude for your partnership and loyalty.  We are reminded of our strength in the community during this moment and we are truly grateful for our extended family.  We have been contacted by many of our artists, who are also concerned about our current events and they’ve decided to lower their prices during these uncertain times.  We know that as the world seems to stand, still life continues to happen - birthdays, anniversaries, Easter and Mother’s Day all will still occur and these lower prices will ease the strain at this time.  Inquire about specific pieces and Krista or Jamie will let you know the temporality lowered prices.

                          Currently, our physical locations will not be open to the public.  We hope to reopen with the Broadmoor Resort and Properties on May 22nd for Memorial Day Weekend.  Until then we plan to be fully functional through our website, social media, email, phone calls, and texts.  Explore our website’s new chat feature for immediate contact with an associate.  If you have any questions about our pieces or artists please reach out.  Our associates are able to respond to any of your inquiries and will do so promptly.
