ARTISTS - PORTRAIT - GABY DOTTER

Born 1962 in Bad Hersfeld, Germany, living now in Kreuzlingen, Switzerland
I am pleased to be able to present a selection of my paintings. Since my graph design study, nude paintings have been my forte. The body in its purest form with its truncations, inflections and rotations has always fascinated me. All nudes paintings were created with live models.
Another passion is expressive portrait painting in the style of spontanious realism as well as architecture paintings in water color, always painted on site.
