Willkommen in meiner Galerie

Ich bin ein Freizeit-Maler und lebe in der Uckermark (Deutschland) in einer wunderschönen Landschaft mit vielen Seen und Wäldern. Meine Leidenschaft ist das Malen direkt in der Natur – Plein Air. Ich liebe es mein Motiv stundenlang anschauen. Es ist spannend, das Wesentliche zu finden. Und es macht mir Freude, es malerisch aufs Papier zu bringen.

Ich liebe die Bilder der Impressionisten – besonders Claude Monet, August Macke und Paul Cezanne.

Welcome to my gallery.

I am a leisure painter and live in the Uckermark (Germany) in a beautiful landscape with many lakes and forests. My passion is painting in nature – Plein Air. I love it to look at my motive for hours. It is exciting to find the essence. And it is a pleasure to capture it in the painting.

I love the pictures of the impressionists – especially Claude Monet, August Macke and Paul Cezanne.

My equipment to digitize my paintings:

Lighting:
OSRAM Lumilux Duo El-F/P 2×58W
(absolutely flicker-free :-) with electronic ballast QUICKTRONIC)

with Philips Master TL-D 58W/950 90 Graphica G13 full spectrum with RA 98 and 5300K (afternoon sun shines – ideal for painting up to deep in the night)
- a uniform lighting of the paintings is most important!

Camera and lens:
Nikon D5300 SLR digital camera (24,2 mega pixels) mounted on a fixed tripod
with lens Nikon AF-S DX Micro-Nikkor 40mm 1:2,8G (lens with f/11 the sharpest)

perforated steel music stand
(for an optimal flatness of paintings you can fix the paintings from the rear through the holes with adhesive tape)

PC:
IPS-TFT monitor mit DataColor Spyder 4 Pro calibrated (… this is the most important!)

The process:
- images photographed in RAW format,
- developed in RawTherapee and
- completed in GIMP (the version 2.6 saves still directly in PNG or JPG)
- saved in PNG format (file size approx. 30 MB)

I am of the opinion, that it is worth the effort for amazing results.
(… without blue tone or grey veil!)
