Richter began as a painter, and later experimented with a variety of techniques, including painting, drawing, watercolour, collage, relief and mosaic, using wood, metal, cardboard, paper, acrylic paint, glass and other materials. A significant part of his work was as a filmmaker, but despite this, which sometimes entirely replaced the painting or limited it, Richter considered himself primarily a painter.
