Walking together

20cm x 20 cm  oil on canvas board
In the summer this two people could, if they wanted to, row a boat at the exact same spot 
they´re walking together hand in hand :)
A lovely scene on a frozen lake in the midst of large Munich city park.
The sun´s just setting and ceating this backlit reflections on the forzen surface.
If you follow my paintings you´ll probably know that I like those backlit scenes very much :)

No black paint used in this and all my paintings, but a careful mix of Alizarin Crimson, Phtalogreen and Ultamarine blue. The background has a bit more green in it.

Wannt to check out my palette on my blog?

Early Departure

20cm x20cm  oil on canvas board

I was on my way to the platform just crossing the bridge when I noticed a lady taking a picture of the beautiful sunrise. 
I quickly took out my camera and made a photo myself. I wish I had 15 or 20 more minutes to see the loveliness that was evolving minute by minute ...

Later I thought how easily we can miss the beauty that surrounds us ... I was focused on getting to the platform and was not even late!

As I went on my journey the power failed and instead of getting upset - I had planned to watch a nice film - 
I took out a good book and decided to enjoy my journey.
And that´s the point, arrival is something to look forward to but so short ... the journey takes a lot longer, 
so why not enjoy the time while we´re on the way to where we are going :)

That´s enough words now, let´s get back to painting ;)

Please feel free to comment.
Thank you.

Sundown at the forest´s edge - larger work

24cm x 30cm  oil on MDF canvas board

This is a larger work from a photo of a study that I´ve painted some years ago. 
It is not a copy. 
I think each painting has its own feel or quality and as such I regard a study or a photo as a starting point for a painting just as nature is a starting point ...

Think of it as "reading" a musical composition from a sheet. 
I believe an interpretation takes place which we can hear and enjoy ... and even though the print is the same the interprtation will never sound the same.

Going out with the dog - grey day

15cm x 15cm  Oil on canvas board

I find it very interesting and challenging to paint the same scene in different seasons.
And even more interesting to paint the same spot in the same time of year but at a different time of day or when weather conditions are different.

This artwork was done from a study I did about three years ago.
I remember well the day I painted the study. It was very cold and windy and I wanted to try out my self-made thumb box in this weather
so I really painted very fast with my box in one hand and my brush in the other.
I was excited when a man with his dog passed me by. I quickly sketched their silhouettes and went home to have a hot cup of coffee.

Another one for "Michael´s painting diary" - series.

Munich - Siegestor and Leopoldstraße

18,5cm x 15cm  oil on Michaels canvas board

Looking through my archive I came accross a plein air painting done a few years ago.
I then used to sign "Sasson".
The painting depicts a portion of the "Siegestor" looking to the north and into "Leopoldstraße" in Munich.
