Dubbeldam's paintings in oil, combined with dry pastel, and sometimes by using Spotting and dripping techniques will make you associate his work with various art forms and different periods of time. It is remarkable to see that the Dutch painter, Ton Dubbeldam, often chooses themes that beautifully come together with his impressionistic and pointillist techniques. There is a certain atmosphere about his canvasses, which will give you the feeling of a 17th century landscape painting. You will notice his specific use of light and dark shades, the depth, the high skies, the wideness, the far horizons, which are not disrupted by buildings or trees.
