Karen Nijst Profile picture Drawing of an African Lady with a colourful jungle in the background where a small blue bird is hiding in her nest.

This drawing was worked out digitally with digital colour pencils and other homemade brushes.

***

In the canvas of an African dream,
A woman's visage, a stunning theme.
Her beauty, a portrait of enchanting grace,
Radiates through the hues of her captivating face.

Behind her, an abstract jungle comes alive,
Where mysteries thrive and fantasies survive.
Vibrant foliage dances in an untamed embrace,
A wild symphony, an artist's embrace.

Within this verdant realm, a small blue bird,
Perched upon its nest, where dreams are heard.
A symbol of hope, nurturing new life,
In the midst of chaos, a respite from strife.

This portrait tells a tale, a sight to behold,
Of an African queen, her story untold.
Her beauty and strength, like art in motion,
An ode to the wonders of this earthly devotion.

Karen Nijst has lived in and near her beloved hometown of Maastricht for many years. She currently works as a web developer (Kahlo Websites in Hapert, Brabant) and is responsible for both programming and graphic design . The latter has undoubtedly influenced some of the drawings you can see here.
Karen likes to draw and write as often as possible and sees herself primarily as an illustrator. She can also become fascinated by a photograph. Like the drawing of the market in Maastricht. What are those people thinking? Where are they going? What would their lives be like? Something like that remains fascinating while drawing each little figure -no matter how small- .
Carnival
Of course also the vastelaovend in Mestreech is subject of many a drawing. A grateful subject even, because only in Maastricht you can find the shoenste scenes. Beautifully dressed up people, wonderful colors ... imaginative and above all: 'chic'.
Technique
In recent years, Karen has enjoyed working on paper and, increasingly, on her IPAD Pro.
Karen: "I enjoy the challenge of looking for the best color palette, the right composition and cut-outs. I also often combine different scenes. In addition, it is not my primary goal to portray people in a recognizable manner, unless of course it is a portrait. I just want to capture a certain atmosphere as well as possible!"
