Alsteranleger im Gegenlicht, Plein Air Studie, 18×24, Oil on canvas,
2016, Astrid Volquardsen

A small plein air study from Monday morning. It was so freezing cold and the sun left every thing sparkling. It reminds me somehow of an impression of Venice. Did you know that Hamburg has more small bridges than Venice? It’s true.

After what felt like an eternity finally could paint plein air again. Originally I wanted to go to my favorite spot at the river but the sky was spotless blue without even a single cloud.

So I turned to a new location to checkout some new idea for an upcoming exhibition. It was a frosty morning but I felt so happy to be there.

Some people obviously felt the same way because one lady bought the painting right there from my easel.

My demo went very well visited and the gallery room just offered enough space. Here I explain the rule of values and how I proceed during a painting.
