The pastels of the St. Peter Ording series are framed now. I liked to show different options how a painting can be presented in different ways all in a scandinavian style.

Either on a wall, painted in a medium grey, like I have in my kitchen.

Followed in front of a light grey wall. The color of the chest of drawers and the grass are used in the painting as well.

What about going for a walk along the beach: at least in your mind? Enjoying a cup pf tea alongside? With some norse accessory you can enhance the effect of the pastel.

Norderwerft – Propeller change (I)

posted in: Blog | 1

The dockyard of the Norderwerft is located on the southbank of the river Elbe, just across the new Elbphilharmonic Concert Hall. If you take the ferry 73 you pass one of the floating docks close by and with luck you can watch some of the workmen in action. (Take the ferry 73 from Landungsbrücken. That’s the one, that brings you to the musicals. Just stay on board, go on. You can stay on the ferry the whole time, it will bring you back to Landungsbrücken, which takes about an hour.)

At that special occasion I was lucky to catch a glimpse of the process as they changed one of the propellers of the tug boats.

Another view from the pier of Teufelsbrück which means devils bridge. A place worth while to take a break, have something to eat in the nearby restaurant and watch the clouds moving across the sky. Cloud movie I call this.
