Leo Windeln


About the artist:

My name is Leo Windeln and I was born in Heinsberg in 1962. I started painting at the age of 16. I acquired my first knowledge at the Free Academy in Roermond. It was about painting still lifes based on realistic models. For about 25 years my passion has been landscape painting. I only paint with very high quality oil paints on canvas stretcher frames. The technique is a mixture of wet in wet technique and layer painting. Like the "Impressionists", I basically paint without the color black. Landscapes hold a great fascination for me. The motifs originate mostly from the area and from trips abroad. The attention to detail, be it the design of a nettle or the discoloring leaf on a bush, is just as much a part of my pictures as capturing the moods of light. The eternal pursuit of perfection, as with my artistic role models, becomes understandable and makes up the charm of my painting. “Your pictures are balm for the soul,” is how a visitor once described my exhibits.
