Portraits and Landscapes

Human and nature I paint or draw as realistic as possible, without changing their character, because this always fascinates me most.

The balanced, traditional doses of oil paint and the brush strokes are my tools that graphically connect the subject and the surrounding area without stitching, so that finally the picture begins to breathe.


Porträt und Landschaft

Ich male und zeichne Menschen und die Natur möglichst realistisch, ohne ihren angeborenen Charakter zu verändern, da dies mich immer wieder fasziniert.

Die ausgeglichene, klassische Dosierung der Ölfarbe und Pinselstriche sind meine Werkzeuge, die zeichnerisch das Thema und die Umgebung ohne Naht verbinden, um das Bild schließlich zum Atmen zu bringen.
