Joaquin Sorolla, Bleistift, 21x30cm, 2014
























Nachdem ich diesen Blog lange nicht mit Posts bedient habe, hier gleich drei meiner letzten Werke. Hoffe sie gefallen Euch. Joaquin Sorolla ist einer meiner Lieblingsmaler, seine Bilder strahlen soviel Luftigkeit und Licht aus. Wer Strand und Wasser mag, kann sich ihm nicht verwehren.

Claude Monet

Oliver Kohls, Claude Monet,
Pastel, 36x26cm, 2014
The second portrait of famous artists. Already thinking about a third one. I did not pay much attention to detail. It is the overall ipmression which is important to me.

Portrait Pablo Picasso

Oliver Kohls, Pablo Picasso, Pastel, 23x27cm,2014
Wanted to do a portrait for a change. He always fascinated me and his eyes are breathtaking. I saw a documentary lately which gave me the idea to give it a try. What do you think?

Seascape Cote Bleu

Finished! The blue-green colors were a challenge as they tend to be to intense. So I had to tone them down with grey. Painting this peace was demanding and rewarding at the same time. And I was really pleased with the result. What do you think?
