Before a painting is made, a longer conversation takes place. This serves to get to know the person to be portrayed. The better the character of the person can be "felt", the more expressive the result will be.
The paintings are created with oil paint on high-quality canvas with a painting knife technique. Paintings made with this technique can neither be copied nor imitated in any other way, so they are unique in the sense of the word. This is due to the specific peculiarities of the painting knife technique, where the colors mix first on the canvas and the thickness of the paint application depends on the movement how the painting knife is guided. Only a few artists master this technique for portraits where even the finest details can be important.
