This painting was done after a study from my last painting. It’s a color combination that just glows and Werner Osterrath wrote in the last comment:

This mood is caused by the industrial light of the ships and piers in combination with the light of dawn. I worked in the harbor in the end of the 1970s and saw this kind of light quite often, but never paid much attention to it: which I now deeply regret.

You can buy this pastel for 550.- Euro (framed with passepartout and musumsglas) and free shipping within Germany. For those living outside of Germany there will be additional shipping costs. If you‹re interested please send me an email for further details: a.volquardsen@pastellbilder.de

    Greetings from Texas – and about 5 miles from the Port of Houston. Wanted to send my complements on your artwork – it is fantastic. I paint watercolors, many featuring ships in port.

      Thank you Civi. Ports are just great to capture in paintings.
