I paint people because man is an inexhaustible source of inspiration for me. In the beginning, I was mainly concerned with the resemblance, now it is a challenge to give a portrait content.
I like to leave large parts of the canvas free or not filled in because I really love an unfinished, not perfect image. And I also like to be able to fill in things myself.
I like working with acrylics. Acrylic fits very well with my method. Fast smooth painted wet layers. Sometimes the canvas lies on the ground and sometimes I put it back on the wall. The charcoal drawings / lines have started to play an ever greater role. It was first a way to quickly set up the portrait, now the lines are an important part of the final result. I recently also incorporated collages through my portraits.
