Projekt Eisenstraße | Christoph Maderthaner.
For my paintings I exclusively use oil color on canvas. At the time I am working on a project to portray people of different professions that are typical for my hometown-region “Eisenstraße”. Attached you can see a woodman, a doctor, a blacksmith, a farmer, a carpenter and a tuba teacher. The paintings measure 200*120 cm.
I am working on this project for about half a year and I think now I am ready to present it to you. The first 4 portraits (the blacksmith, the farmer, the carpenter and the tuba teacher) were painted in alla prima. For the other 2 portraits (the woodman and the doctor) scumbling-technique was used.
My purpose is to accomplish photo-realistic paintings.
