Today I should like to introduce you to the painter Herdin Radtke. As you will have read in previous posts he was the artist I shared a booth with at the Creativa Arts Fair in 2018.
Herdin is a life-long artist who started out on his own after learning from other professionals. He sold his first paintings to a gallery early on in his career and went on to paint and sell his works in Rome. He later moved to Spain living next door to Salvador Dali for six years. He was even commissioned to restore some of Dali´s older paintings.
Herdin also spent many years in France where he still owns a house. Today he lives in his native country Germany. He teaches oil painting in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and France with the occasional trip to Marocco. Herdin has developed a special approach to blending oils allowing his students to achieve very encouraging results in a single course. He is the author of a number of books on oil painting. He has developed several painting DVDs with instructions on various subjects from apples to candles and floral still lifes.
If you are interested please contact Herdin. Being a well-travelled veteran of the arts world he speaks several languages including English so by all means write to him.
