Wachau 2

On Sunday morning we looked for a place in the hills again to paint downstream. The sun burned down, there was no wind and the landscape seemd to shimmer in front of our eyes.
After lunch we drove to the landing station of the car ferry oposite of Weissenkirchen. This is just a first quick sketch as - how else can it be on a painting trip to Wachau - the next thunderstorm put a rather hurried end to this weekend. Driving back home I thought about what a failing this painting turned out to be. Some days later I put this years paintings side by side with last years and suddenly I could see the developement even in this unfinished painting above. Maybe there is hope still.....

  1. It's never a failure if you look and learn from it. You can call it a learning exercise - and no matter what it turns out like - if you learn what you need to - it will be a success!
