Since I graduated as a product designer in the 80´s I have worked as a motorcyle- and car designer for Honda, BMW, Mazda, Opel, Saab and also for VW. This and some petrol in my blood might be the reason for my love in classical cars.

Beside my work as a car designer I really enjoy painting landscapes, which seem to be dominated by Islay scenery, an island I fell in love with many years ago and a place where I tried to spend as much time as possible, before I decided to live here. Depending on subject and size of the painting my preferred media are watercolour or acrylics. 
Mostly I 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.

Despite my name I 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.

Thank you for showing interest in my work!

Enjoy browsing! For any inquiries or for purchasing a painting don´t hesitate to get in touch via "dietmar@fingerpainting.de".

The Outback Art Gallery at Sanaigmore/Islay took on some of my original paintings. The gallery is a nice place to go, not only for the artwork but also for their good coffee and home baking.

Workshops inkl. Unterkunft auf der Insel Islay


Seit Dezember 2017 wohne ich im ruhig gelegenen Örtchen Carnduncan auf der Hebriden- insel Islay, gelegen vor der schottischen Westküste. Nachdem ich schon seit zwei Jahren dort Skizzenkurse veranstaltet habe, kann ich dies nun intensivieren und, da ein eigenes Atelier zur Verfügung steht, auch mit Aquarellkursen in den Abend hinein vertiefen.

Da ich auch B&B anbiete stehen neben dem durchgehend offenen Atelier auch zwei Gästezimmer zur Verfügung, in dem Kursteilnehmer wohnen können.

Weitere Informationen unter WORKSHOPS und ACCOMMODATION.


Für Gruppen ab min. zwei Personen können auch Workshops ohne Unterkunft organisiert werden. Kontakt hierfür bitte unter dietmar@fingerpainting.de.
