Still life paintings

His work mainly consists out of still life paintings, portraits, flowers and animals. Teunissen strives to remain as close to reality as possible in his paintings. They have a very classic and timeless feel to them, but he certainly isn’t afraid to incorporate a modern touch. People who come across his work evoke reactions such as: “So real you want to take a bite out of it” and “You can smell what fruit it’s about”. Teunissen is a major autodidact en studied the work of great, old masters. Also the contact with fellow artists and experimenting with different materials and subject brought him the skills to create these lifelike paintings.
