Some recent portraits | Einige aktuelle Portraits

Since spring I quite frequently painted portraits and recently with people from the Vienna Sketchgroup. The ones among you, who do portraits, know what a drag it is sometimes. It is not only the resemblance I like to capture. It is more the essence of that person.

Seit Frühling habe ich immer wieder Portraits gemalt und in jüngster Zeit zusammen mit Leuten der Vienna Sketchgroup. Diejenigen unter Euch, die sich ebenfalls dem Portrait widmen, wissen, was für eine Mühsal es manchmal ist. Es ist ja nicht nur die Ähnlichkeit, die es zu erreichen gilt, vielmehr ist es das Wesentliche einer Person.

ahhh Stephan, the essence, the emotion, the soul of the sitter, it is a tough one which i delight in if i can capture it.... i find i can't paint with a group of painters but need to be alone to build a dialogue in my head with the subject. your work has a powerful touch and freshness to it. i look forward to seeing more

Thanks!
