Since my time as a car designer I really enjoy painting landscapes, a passion which started while visiting the Isle of Islay, an island where I now live and work. Depending on subject and size of the painting my preferred media are watercolour or acrylics.  


I mostly work in my studio, but sketching on site and capturing moods and impressions in my sketchbook is a pleasure, which makes me forget the time and the world around me.


It might be worth to mention that I usually do not paint with my fingers. I prefer to use brushes, but I thought it would be fun to name my website “www.fingerpainting.de” after my surname.


I have to admit a slight tardiness in updating my website, but fingerpainting is also on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/fingerpainting.de/


For any inquiries don´t hesitate to get in touch with me by email: dietmar@fingerpainting.de.


Thank you for showing interest in my work! and enjoy your visit to my website!
