A beautiful watercolour postcard from Martin Stankewitz



Maulbronn, Watercolour, Martin Stankewitz


Just look at the gorgeous postcard that the postman handed me this morning

It's a cold wet day in Germany painted with actual rain water.

I've done my best with the colour matching in the scan, it contains multiple soft variations on grey, hints of colour, perfectly catching the atmosphere and soft grey light of an overcast, rainy day.

Thank you Martin :>)

Painted with actual rain water! Top that! :)

It's a simply gorgeous atmospheric painting.

I like the signature - I'm going to have to think about that - it makes it personal

This is absolutely approbriate for the weather over here. Could be a perfect illustration for a crime story. Very good Martin!

Claire said...

This is super Martin! I love the shapes and the tonal variations, very powerful. You guys in Germany are clearly having the same weather as we are in the UK - grey and wet! Looking out of my window the view seems drab, but your painting reminds me that something beautiful can always be seen, no matter how dull the sky is!

This is exactly the sort of scene that makes me think, "If only it was possible to capture that in a painting." Now I know, it IS possible!

This is so beautiful Martin, can just feel the cold and mist!

This is just so perfect for the atmosphere you have described in your posts. I can feel the damp, cold foggy day. I like the comment from Albrecht about the crime novel!

A wonderful painting. I had to wait to see it on the big computer and it still holds up. Beautifully done, Martin.

Such wonderful subtle layers of light and colour, Martin. Awesome.

Martin, this has all the mystery of a misty, rainy, overcast winter's day...makes me feel like stepping into a story!
