About me

About me

One may think, that there is no order in my pictures, but if you look at them closely, you may see that all subjects are in contact. There is no beginning and no end. On purpose, everything is in connection, similar to our life.

Ingrid HalterBetween all my activities, the face ginding of semi-precious stones is my favorite, especially to observe very thin grinded stones under the microscope. The colours of the different minerals, the fissures, inclusions and cristallizations have shown me my way of painting.

I am essentially painting subjects out of nature, animals, plants, birds, insects and stones. Before starting, I inform myself about the way of life, the living space, the ethology or the deposit. After that, I sketch the main subject. The development of the background is left to my imagination.

My picutres are painted on canvas with H2Oil colours, that means dilution with water.
