I'm pleased that before enjoying these sweet tomatoes with a friend for lunch I managed to capture them on paper this morning.

Two Palm Trees





















Spring is letting us wait a long time this year. So when at last for at least one day the sun was shining I took advantage of it, sat outside and drew these summerly trees. Next days....rain again.

Two T-shirts





















It's been lightyears since I did anything with coloured pencils and I am glad I gave it a try again as this little drawing lent itself to it.  It was so much fun! I've decided to do more drawing and colouring in the near future.

Into the Village





















oil on canvas - Öl auf Leinwand - huile sur toile
60 x 60 cm / 23,6 x 23,6"

This is a larger version of the last painting I posted.  I have been struggling with it over the last week and was more than once on the verge of wiping it all out. This morning I attempted it one last time by trying out painting with a spatula instead of brushes for the first time ever. And voilà! it worked much better than before and was good fun, too. 
I find it quite a bit more difficult to paint in a larger size after having concentrated mainly on the smaller daily paintings for many years - but I am enjoying the challenge!

Bad Weather

Looking at an old boring painting of mine which I was just about to cover with a new hopefully more interesting  one, I suddenly saw potential in it and gave it another chance. A very satisfying experience.  I am quite happy with the outcome - it is more dramatic now, more atmospheric.

Here's the original painting before I reworked it:

I am bouncing from one subject to another, trying to find a thread. It's a way of getting back into a flow after a long time without regular practice but I haven't quite found THE thing that sparks a thrill... bear with me!

A good friend of mine who studied with me at the art school in Berlin a long time ago, lives and works in a lovely old workshop. The photo I took there when visiting him in summer inspired me for this painting.

At the Seaside






















oil on canvas panel - Öl auf Malplatte - huile sur carton entoilé
15 cm x 15 cm / 5,9" x 5,9"

This is a sketch for a larger painting I might want to paint soon. It is based on one of my all time favourite black and white photographs of my parents and was taken when they had just started dating. I love the carefree mood and the feeling of summer, sun and love. And, from a visual point of view I really like the way the colours of their clothes form a cross - a checker board design - and I like the angle, seeing them from below which gives lots of open sky as background.

So, here's the beautiful young lady I was telling you about the other day. 
She commissioned me to paint her brother's and her portrait as a gift for her mother's 50th birthday.
