Art Description

Painting: Gouache, Acrylic, Tempera, Graphite, Pastel on Canvas.

A big expressive piece in an unusual size for a landscape done in old school layering technique, just like the Dutch masters did it: first handmade gouache, then handmade egg tempera and pastels, graphite and last but not least little oil.
This way the painting can have very soft and tender spots as well as stronger parts with mark making, lose drawings and sketches.

Also, in this series you will find calligraphy with graphite: the word "Himmel" (sky) is of special beauty to me , so I love to use this word in my paintings. You can also see a framelike structure with graphite, reminding us of a view through window. There are some windmills in the painting, as these are turning up near the sea more and more and are a sign in modern landscapes. I feel they start to change our landscapes just like industrialization did, but of course it is better to have windmills than coal or atomic techniques. Last but not least this painting means a lot of fresh air hopefully coming your way when watching it!

120x80x2 cm, gouache, eggtempera, pastels, oil and graphite on canvas. Sides painted white with painting traces. Signed on the back, ready to hang. White or silver frame would look great but is not needed. Sides white with traces of painting process.
