I started the series Austrian Lakescapes in palette knife technique already in 2015 when I was on a “Kur” near the Weissensee. I have some childhood memories associated with the Weissensee, especially the Ronacher Rock. Since I started the series during my “Kur”, I chose the format 12 x 16 inches for most of the paintings. Even that size was already a challenge on the small tables in the room. Most of the paintings were taken from photos of shot by me and others.
Soon after I had moved to Strobl at Wolfgangsee I extended the series with some paintings around the Wolfgangsee – a view from Ried (which belongs to St. Gilgen), a view from Abersee to the Schafberg and two sunsets in Strobl.
Eventually, the series included paintings of lakescapes from all over Austria – from East to West – from Lake Neusiedl to Lake Constance.
The series was part of an exhibition in Fall 2019 in the Kuchltheater in Bad Ischl and the topic of the fine art calendar 2020.
