Plein Air Challenge – ECWS Ulm 2021

I am just back from a wonderful trip to the beautiful city of Ulm where I joined the symposium of European Watercolor-Artists at the annual ECWS meeting. These were a few days I really enjoyed and there will be a short movie of the trip in a few days. One point on the program was a plein-air challenge in the old town of Ulm, organized by the sponsors of the event. Unexspected I won the 3rd price (I thought there were so many works much better than mine), which was a nice surprise. You will find a making-of on my freewatercolortutorials page soon.

Ich bin gerade von einer wundervollen Reise in die schöne Stadt Ulm zurück, wo ich beim jährlichen ECWS-Treffen am Symposium der europäischen Aquarell-Künstler teilgenommen habe. Das waren ein paar Tage, die ich sehr genossen habe und in ein paar Tagen wird es einen kurzen Film von der Reise geben. Ein Programmpunkt war eine Plein-Air-Challenge in der Ulmer Altstadt, organisiert von den Sponsoren der Veranstaltung. Unerwartet gewann ich den 3. Preis (ich dachte, es gibt so viele Werke, die viel besser sind als meine), was eine schöne Überraschung war. Ein Making-of findet ihr demnächst auf meiner kostenlosen Aquarell-Tutorials-Seite.

      1. I am trying my first Plein Air painting this week in my back yard. I am painting the yellow wild flowers blooming in the wooded area behind me just beyond the trees. It gets a little hot by early afternoon.
