Even though most of the trees have lost their foliage, there is still this wonderful reddish warm color in the air.

When I do this color studies, I don’t take any fotographs. I just stand there and take everythink in. Back in the studio I will bring my memories onto the paper, giving me a time limit of 15 minutes to finish the piece.

    Hallo Astrid,
    wunderbar, wie Du die Atmosphäre von dunstigem Licht und Kälte eingefangen hast. Gleichzeitig erahne ich den warmen Raum, in dem das Bild entstanden ist.

    Lovely work, Astrid – I always like these Farbimpression pieces. They suggest so much with a minimum of marks.

    Memory, well trained, create strong pieces. Love the texture of the fog and the highlight on that tree.

    I like this one very much. It has a lot of palpably bright energy.
