Pilgrimage Route to the Startower of Thanwarad

Pilgrimage Route to the Startower of Thanwarad

This is part of a photo (the foreground) and a painting so I would call it technically a concept matte. Still the idea is to paint it one day the traditional ways for this is my main tool to express my art. Original photo courtesy of Jakub Śliwiński.

Miniature II

Miniature II by boettcherART

Oils on linen, 15x15 cm (5.9x5.9'').

Decission made: I think I'll stay with my outlines and keep up developing this kind of style. It has far more expression at least to me and so I must follow the call ;-)

Municipal Park Leonberg

Sketch: Municipal Park Leonberg by boettcherART

This was done in 2009 as first try to marry my older loose brush work and my current outlining but I never really followed that path... strange, but nowadays I feel the urge to open that door again and do a handful of paintings to see what will happen. This idea has grabbed my mind so I think I just have to do it.
Acrylics on paper, done plein air.
