In 75 full colour watercolours, Peter van Tilburg gives a loving picture of how different the character of the landscape in the Brabantse Kempen (the Netherlands) is, how rich and diverse the flora and fauna are in those nature reserves and estates. Emmanuel Naaijkens tells about the history and particularities of the places. Their view makes the reader aware of the value of the landscape that we must cherish for the future. The reader is invited to walk in these regions and find it an equally delightful experience.
Brabants Landschap has mapped out 4 walking routes that pass the places where the watercolours were made.

Silence in time of turmoil
My explanation and interpretation of art refers, among other things, to how to connect new expressions with existing images. This not only indicates the advancing development of art, but also my antagonistic experience of the arts. Assimilation of modern, sober forms with romantic expressions of art could result in an interesting synergy: a new pattern that scours, though nevertheless could be well-balanced. The result is, so to speak a new layer of which the total is more than the sum of the individual components. That I am trying in my spatial work, but also in this etching: capturing the silence in our time of turmoil.
