hmmm, seems I am far behind to take photographs of my recent paintings... so I would like to share at least a "on the easel"-shot of my brandnew work :)

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 post-impressionistic fine art landscapes.

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.

Vielen Dank für das "watchen"! Und ich muß sagen, deine Bilder sind wirklich atemberaubend! Ganz große Klasse!!! :)

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.

Na, das macht mich jetzt aber neugierig! :) Und ich habe dir ja erlaubt, aus meiner Gallerie zu wählen, also ist es kein Problem, daß Du dich umentschieden hast. Für mich wird es so nur umso spannender... ;)

Ich habe Dir eine Note geschickt, um die Spannung zu lindern ;-)

My, you've been busy since I last looked in – so many wonderful paintings! I'm very impressed. I like both your landscapes/cityscapes with the heavy paint and the landscapes with that sort of an outline – both create a real impression of a place. The sci-fi work is cool too. Don't know why I hadn't you on my watch list. (I'm pretty inept in the social aspects of this site) but I've now corrected that.

Thank you very much for your kind words!! Well, indeed I am again more into painting than I was a while ago because I lost interest in this digital stuff and focused back on traditional fine art. Also skipped the outline after six years of exploring this particular style and doing more of the "heavy" ones now - because I like the freedom of color there and I think there is still much to explore again since I left this style many years ago... all goes in circles it seems.
