some Moleskine sketches from Bulgaria

(Kommentare: 0)

Moleskine is a brand of different sketch- and notebooks. They a very handy and reliable. The paper is a bit yellowish. The size 13x21cm. I used mostly ballpont with color pencils. This is a series from the Czernomoretz – a small town on the bulgarian black sea coast.

While painting the white fishcutter in the harbour, the wind disappeared and suddenly hundreds small insects decided to inspect the freshly painted panel covered with wet oil colours. It seems that they were attracted by the turpentine. After a while I had to stop – it was impossible to continue with all these small insects mixed with the colors.

Here I’m showing 3 finished paintings from location. I positioned myself on the only road in both directions on the peninsula Alt-Reddevitz. While working on the clouds painting, a lot people came by, may be more than 100. The main question they asked was: »Is this your hobby?«.

The south-east part from Rügen is called Mönchsgut. The whole area is divided into four peninsulas. Long bays offer boats and ships shelter from storms. The whole area is perfect for landscape painting. I shot these photos during my latest painting trip there.

The first weeks of July were more than hot, no rain, no wind only heat. Not the best conditions for painting outside. I painted this small landscape south from Berlin, around Teltow. Oil on panel, 20x20cm

Finally I found time to update this blog. I prepared some paintings, sketches and photos from the last 3 months. I start with two watercolors and some photos from the Havel river, about 70km west from Berlin. There, in a very small village – Bahnitz – I had a two days exhibition.

Impressions from Extremadura part 3

While traveling trough Extremadura, I saw so many good opportunities for sketching and painting. Especially the mountainous landscape offers so much different views. Due to the tight program we had, I could sketch only during our bus stops or after dinner. So I had to concentrate on landscapes. All sketches are with inkpen and colored pencils.

The last 4 days of February, together with 25 birdwatchers and touroperators I was invited to a trip trough Extremadura. Our main destinations were Plasencia, Monfrague, Merida, Llerema and Zafra. There were a lot of interesting spots on the route, where we stopped. Stay tuned for part two.
