Portrait of S

Now that the painting season with my evening class comes to an end I would like to thank our two models we worked with most. Sigrid and Andreas, who were so patient and inspiring to all of us.

Da sich nun die Malsaison mit meinem Abendkurs dem Ende zuneigt, möchte ich unseren zwei Modellen danken, mit denen wir hauptsächlich gearbeitet haben. Sigrid und Andreas, die so geduldig waren und uns inspiriert haben.

You are definively right, Jennifer. Thank you!

Stefan Nuetzel said...

Hi Don, die Skizze hat schon seine lockere 22 Min gedauert. ;-)

Ich hab mir den Link angesehen und glaube sogar auch die Ausstellung bei Hilger gesehen zu haben, muß aber gestehen, daß mir Fotomalerei nicht so sehr zusagt.

Stefan, you honor me with your comments about my painting. Thank you very much!

I agree with Jennifer about your portrait. It is positively arresting!

My Best to You!
Mike

Todd Bonita said...

wow! You seem to manage painting everything from portraits to landscape with incredible skill. You make it look easy, which is the sign of a painter who knows what he is doing.
Well done work here.
All my best to you,
Todd

Love the loose brush strokes and warm color!

Stefan Nuetzel said...

Hi Mike, thank you for your comment and I find it so inspiring what painters all over the internet and world, like you do.

Stefan Nuetzel said...

Thanks Todd for dropping by and leaving a comment and this wonderful compliment. I used to paint mostly portraits and nudes for many years. By gaining more technical security and loosing the ambition to produce art, I experienced the joy of seeing the world around me through painters eyes. So I broadend my subject matters. That maybe an explanation.

Stefan Nuetzel said...

Thanks Alina!

Danny Griego said...

C. Ousley said...

ANDREW JUDD said...

Beautiful fresh colour and loose expressive brushwork.
Just what I'd expect from you Nue!

Cheers... Andrew

Stefan Nuetzel said...

Thanks Danny, the drag with portraits is that almost everybody can see the flaws in the drawing. That is really a challenge.

Stefan Nuetzel said...

Hi Chris, it is so hard to see these things and when I do, I try to push these color accents in the right direction, which sometimes failes.

Stefan Nuetzel said...

Thanks Rob, during painting I struggled with that red because it is so overwhelming. I know why you like it. One word: FERRARI! ;-)

Stefan Nuetzel said...

Hi Andrew, you are still alive. I am also looking forward to expect some good painting from you soon. ;-)
Thank you!

C. Ousley said...

These did not fail. ;-) Did you see my portrait of the lady with the green hat on my blog?

Stefan Nuetzel said...

Chris, what do you mean with "these"? Maybe you posted your comment under the wrong picture. I saw your portrait and it has got such a wonderful expression.
