Winter Impression of Sylt

1. March 2010
70 x 100 cm (27.6” x 39.4”)
Oil on canvas

The island Sylt is a unique part of Germany and a part of the Frisian Islands. The sky at the beach can reach a fantastic blue color, where it is almost undistinguishable from the sea. In winter the sand dunes crowned by sparse dry grass may be partly covered by snow and aligned by dark shadows, reaching an extraordinary artistic effect which is the moment captured in my painting.

Das Licht auf Sylt MARCO POLO Reiseführer Sylt mit Szene-Guide, 24h Action pur, Insider-Tipps, Reise-Atlas: Reisen mit Insider-Tipps ist wohl einmalig. Der Himmel kann ein Blau erreichen, das vom Blau der See nicht zu unterscheiden ist. Wie in meinem Gemälde eingefangen, können die von spärlichen Grassbüscheln gekrönten gelben Dünen im Winter teilweise vom Schnee bedeckt und von dunklen Schatten umrahmt sein, was einen außerordentlichen künstlerischen Effekt erzielt.
