From old Hindeloopen painting I would like to share some painting and design ideas. A wonderful fact is that we also have some Hindeloopen contemporary artists still painting this tradition, each in his own interpretation and you can visit their studios there in northern Holland. It is encouraging to realize that decorative artists can earn a living painting in the modern age.
