New works

painting summer day - landscape abstract, Wulfsdorf near Hamburg

My painting "Late summer flower garden" encouraged me to paint outside in the landscape at the easel again (in Ahrensburg near Hamburg). This time on a hot day at the end of June, so it should be called "Summer day". However, it has only been finished after many hours of painting in the studio. The picture can also be found under the menu item painting. (Summer day, 50 x 80 cm, acrylic on canvas)

painting salt marsh, North Sea coast

I would have liked to paint there in nature, but the way was too difficult to take easel and colors with me. So I made a drawing (Salt marsh, 15 x 21 cm, calligraphy pen on paper) to capture my impression and many photos. The next day, still directly influenced by the experience, I painted. The picture can also be found under the menu item Painting. (Salt marsh, 40 x 60 cm, acrylic on canvas)

painting storm sun rain, North Sea, Hallig islands, triptych

At the beginning of the year 2018 the three paintings "storm, sunshine and rain" were created. Inspired by the often very fast changing weather at the German North Sea coast, the idea was born to devote a triptych to these forces of nature. There is no location from which one can see the sea views as painted. It is a painting of inner landscapes, a world of ideas. I thought of the North Frisian Hallig islands and their inhabitants, who are so exposed to the weather. The pictures can also be found under the menu item Painting. (Storm, sunshine and rain, 45 x 105 cm, acrylic on canvas)

painting flowers garden abstract

The painting "late summer flower garden" I painted at the easel outside in the middle of a flower garden (Organic farm Gut Wulfsdorf in Ahrensburg near Hamburg). I concentrated on the colors, which I saw before me, to mix them as paints as accurately as possible on the pallet, and to bring them out of the impulse to the canvas. Shapes were at first secondary, but shapes sometimes emerge later - as if by themselves. The picture can also be found under the menu item Painting. (Late summer flower garden, 49 x 80 cm, acrylic on canvas)

Cloud over the wadden sea

I saw this big cloud over the wadden sea just before a thunderstorm came up. The rain had not yet started and I could take a photo. The painting "Cloud over the wadden sea" was created a bit later in the atelier with my memories about the colors and contrasts of this dramatic moment. The picture can also be found under the menu item Painting. (Cloud over the wadden sea, 60 x 80 cm, acrylic on canvas)
