About Birgit Schweiger

I take my inspiration out of my surrounding, mostly through reading and watching.
Acrylic and/or Oil on Canvas, recently more experimenting with drawings on wood as well as on canvas. At the moment focusing on new oil paintings on one hand and digital drawings, printed on alu-dibond on the othr hand.

I like painting with strong colours and strong ductus to boost with this technique and create strong contrast with light/shadows.

Sometimes I need some break from the human race and then I try to work with industrial objects, industrial halls or quite different only dig into nature - big landscapes, snow, grass.
