Piece description from the artist
Why do I love to paint fruits? Because they offer a great range of variety in shape, colors and textures – and by the way, they taste awfully good. Peaches have a color range from yellow to orange to a deep dark red. Their skin is like velvet. And the three guys I have painted here even have a pattern on their skin. A real challenge to paint.
Dietrich Moravec has been a selftaught artist for more than 4 decades. In the 1970s he began studying the techniques of the old masters. He experimented with egg tempera and oil painting, later on with acrylics in combination with oils or just acrylics. He dedicated himself to realism and photorealism. Other atistic techniques he used to work with are etching, drawings with graphite and charcoal, and scratchboard. His main subjects are still lifes with fruits or flowers, landscapes and sometimes animals. He made his living as an architectural draftsman and a teacher for arts and IT. Now he is retired and lives in a small town in Bavaria, Germany.
