During the actual painting, he carefully applies thin, even layers of paint in order to achieve a reproduction of the paper model that is as accurate as possible. In fact, he (re)constructs the paper model in paint on the canvas.

The Antwerp based, Dutch artist Kees Goudzwaard, creates smooth surfaced oil paintings that look like taped pieces of paper. Goudzwaard’s paintings display lucid forms, neatly arranged and, in a number of cases, apparently connected by pieces of tape. For all of his paintings Kees Goudzwaard makes models of wafer-thin materials such as paper, transparent foil and tape.
He works for weeks, occasionally months, on the ‘prototypes’ for his paintings.
