Spring is coming!

I proudly present: Spring is coming! This is the new painting I was talking about in my latest post. It was a big project: very high resolution (you can basically print it on your wall :), loads of detail and I sat more than two weeks with it from first draft to finish.
An early day in spring: The snow is slowly being melted away by the first warm rays of the sun, snowbells and crocus flowers are starting to bloom, the forest animals are playful and happy that a long winter finally comes to an end.

Home is where the Heart is

It was much fun to create this one. I didn’t paint a night scene before and I felt that it was quite challenging in the beginning to get the colours and the atmosphere right. I didn’t want it to be just blue and black and therefore I created a nice and vivid contrast by adding the orange tent, the dying fire and a few fireflies. I also worked with subtle green to make the colour spectrum more interesting. The goal was to capture the feeling of a cosy and bright summer night. Imagine the crisp and clear air coming in from the sea as a refreshing breeze after a warm summer day is over, the sound of crickets in the grass and of the distant shore. A pity that the app only features wind sounds 😉 – but the wind recording for this scene is truly beautiful. You should check it out yourself! windy.fm.

Summer Breeze

Whilst creating the scenes for Windy I listened to the original wind recordings which would be featured in the app. The challenge was to match the atmosphere which was created by the sound. When I painted Summer Breeze I thought about long, swaying grass, leaves – playing catch with the wind and trees with thick treecrowns, whispering whilst a gust of wind rushed through them.
It was a really sensual experience to work on this painting and I love the result!

Tales of the Fireflies

It has been a while since my last post but today I present you a new picture I worked on the last couple of days. I wanted a fourth piece for the series of the wolf and the squirrel which acknowledges the already existing pictures. In this regard I wanted to show a landscape with close resemblance to the one I created in ‘Summer Rain’, so that the viewer would get the feeling that he or she had been there before.

‘Want a Nut?’

How would you react if a squirrel would offer you an acorn?
