"My Fine Art Paintings start with a Sketch"

Fine art paintings start with a sketch on paper. This is actually something many people do not realize. Before a stroke of paint touches the canvas, several sketches are made.

I make these sketches just to visualize my ideas. This is something we all do without even realizing it. Have a look at your agenda, kalender or notebook next to your telephone! We all have an urge to put ideas on paper.

So why do we do this? It is easy, our mind overwhelms us with thoughts and the ones we like are visualised by us. These thoughts can make there way into a diary, comments in a photo album, book or in abstract art paintings.

A small idea or thought born as a simple sketch can grow to beautiful oil paintings.

Enjoy my abstract Oil Paintings and Sculptures made over the years when I was inspired by beautiful landscapes all over the world and the variety of cultures and people I met.
