Hanne Lore Koehler:

"My love for action and fascination with capturing a flash of movement in a motionless art form should be evident in my action paintings of children playing. Contemporary portraiture, like today's lifestyle, is becoming less formal and rigid. I prefer to paint a child in a natural unpretentious composition, focusing on details of a focal point of the subject and blurring the background to create the illusion of movement. Impressionistic backgrounds and the realistic detailed images of the children create the feeling of movement in my informal portraits."

Contemporary action paintings can easily be captured in natural composition with the aid of photography. Today's digital photography makes it feasible for an artist to take hundreds of shots of a particular action in different settings under different lighting conditions. Even given hundreds of choices of which action to paint, 99% of the time I will still combine elements from at least two or more photos to produce the effect that I am looking for. Often I find the action perfect in one photo, the light fantastic in another, the dangling shoelace amazing in a third, the windswept hair awesome in a forth. The challenge is to combine all of these elements into one painting, making it look natural, realistic and exciting.

With the aid of modern technology, today's artist can paint action-packed detailed images from photographs to produce contemporary realistic and informal portraits and action paintings. A child's portrait is more likely to evoke happy memories if the subject is engaged in a favorite activity in natural surroundings. To be clear, I only use photographs as reference material for my original paintings, often producing detailed pencil drawings on the canvas before I paint. My action portraits are hand-painted original paintings done by looking at photographs of the subject in action as if it were frozen in time in my studio. They are NOT painted over top of a mechanically reproduced photograph."
