landscapes, seascapes, still lifes

I grew up painting and drawing with my father, a painter and decorator. A lot of my enjoyment in painting I owe to my arts teacher Jochen Daerr (1909 – 1986) an excellent landscape artist himself. For many years I have worked as an electrical engineer after studying at Aachen University and the Imperial College London whilst continuing to paint in my spare time. I am self-taught, now painting full time in oils or acrylics on canvas or canvas boards. I also master drawings in coloured pencil on fine-art paper. Mostly I use my own photographs and experience together with personal memories to create my impressions of a landscape. I prefer realistic presentations of my subject in order to remind the onlooker of the beauties of nature without a detour through abstraction. My favourite subjects are the coast and country of Devon and Cornwall as well as the mountains of Austria but I have also captured famous buildings around Europe. Regular visits to my favourite spots in England and Austria make sure I have enough material for inspiration. You are welcome to write to me on my blog or visit my website

How this appeared on the blog I do not know. And I certainly do not know where those comments came from which seem to be totally unrelated to the post.
