8 years ago I picked up my hobby painting again. After at least 30 years of doing nothing about it. After my retirement in 2017 (Profession; technical engineer). I got even more time to further develop this fascinating hobby. By experimenting and practicing a lot myself, I try to reach a certain level, which gives me a lot of pleasure in painting. I usually paint in oil paint. Taking portraits is one of my favorite activities, in which I try to depict the life of a certain person. Every now and then I also make landscapes with a hint of a bit of fantasy (animals incorporated).
