During the last week I was trying different ways to paint this old American farmhouse, searching for the way I would like to picture it in a larger watercolor. You might think that it was boring to do all these sketches of the same motive but in fact it was really exciting to try different ways of painting and moods to find out what would be the best way for the final watercolor. To be honest: I still don´t know how the final will look like – but i am going to paint it this weekend. I seem to be warmed up now. 🙂


Während der letzten Woche habe ich verschiedene Wege ausprobiert, dieses alte Amerikanische Farmhaus zu malen, auf der Suche nach dem Weg, wie ich es in einem großen Aquarell malen will. Ihr mögt denken, dass es ziemlich langweilig sein muss, dass gleiche Motiv immer wieder zu malen, aber ich fand es ziemlich spannend, an diesem Motiv unterschiedliche Malweisen und Stimmungen auszuprobieren, um herauszufinden, wie ich es am besten in einem großformatigen Aquarell umsetze. Ich bin mir immer noch nicht sicher, wie es aussehen wird – aber ich werde es dieses Wochenende herausfinden. Ich bin jetzt wohl “warmgemalt”. 🙂

  1. oh my! which one tells the most about the place or about how you feel about the place? I, personally, am attracted to the sketches which show the house in it’s larger setting.

    And, i guess the 7 sketches i have made for my large format hopeful are nothing compared to the work you have done here. You continue to be an inspiration.

    1. Thanks so much, Holly. There was no place or reference. It is a `stereotype´farmhouse that developed from painting and drawing so many others. I was just interested how different days and moods would take effect on the sketches. It was not work – it was Relaxing. A ´painting houses therapy`. 🙂
