Art-deWhill's Profile Picture
Stefan Böttcher
Artist | Varied
Hi, I am Stefan, aka boettcherART, published part-time fine art painter and illustrator from Germany doing mostly traditional works but also now and then scifi and fantasy stuff for certain small publishing houses and fan groups.
BTW my profilname "Art deWhill" here is my old nick I had back in the days when I was a busy part of the Star Wars fandom.
I did and still do a lot of differnt things, always exploring new styles and ideas but my heart truely belongs to the traditional expressive realism.

If you are interested in buying original artworks, prints or licensing agreements please feel free to contact me.
This is just some sort of personal gallery to exhibit a selection of my works.

Thanks for looking around! I hope you enjoy my paintings just as I had enjoyed creating them. Live is boring enough...

Art classes of Werner Schmal, Holde Woessner, Alice Herold, Cristian Korn and others.
Awarded a commendation by a panel of the Academy of Fine Arts Stuttgart.
First participation in an exhibition in 1996.

Hi Stefan I like your painting style; think that I might be interesting for you to study the works of this Californian painter…

I think your style will come to your, just keep on painting. In fact it will change over the years depending on your ideas and techniques you discover. My paintings have many faces depending on my mood and particular look and expression I wanted to achive. It happens and because it is coming out of my mind and made with my hand it is all my style :) Don't think to much about it, just let the paintings happen :)

Sehr gerne geschehen - und einen herzlichen Dank zurück! :)

Wie Du ja weißt finde ich Deine Fotoarbeiten sehr inspirierend und inzwischen ist auch eine Aufnahme in ein Gemälde "übersetzt" worden - Du hattest mir ja Deine großzügige Erlaubnis dafür gegeben. Es ist allerdings ein anderes geworden als das zunächst angefragte, lass Dich überraschen.

Für die Modelle ist eine malerische Umsetzung in meinem Stil des expressiven Realismus meist eher enttäuschend, da ich z.B. keine Gesichter male. Es geht hierbei nicht um das Individuum, sondern um das Motiv als Einheit, also eben um eine Figur in einer bestimmten Umgebung, es geht um Farben und Formen, teils realfarben, teils "gefühlte" Farben... Sobald ich ein brauchbares Foto davon habe, melde ich mich natürlich.
