The American Westcoast painter Richard Diebenkorn painted for years in Ocean Park Santa Monica, CA. Diebenkorn made in total some 135 paintings, together known as the Ocean Park Series. I will paint like Diebenkorn and I will show you how I come up with a composition like Diebenkorn. I just love looking at American abstract painting and making a painting in their style. In my Diebenkorn style painting I use images from my hometown IJsselstein in the Netherlands. Just to show you an easy way how you can create a personalized composition yourself using parts from your hometown.
