Biergarten in Minden

Biergarten in Minden
Biergarten in Minden, Germany acrylics on paper 54 x 75 cm/21.25 x 29.5

The design accentuates the flow of the river from left to right. Children bath on the far bank done in impressionist style. The otherwise expressionistic painting has a rich and wide range colors.

Minden is a small town on the junction of the Mittelland Kanal and the Wesser River. The canal crosses the river via a beautiful old aqueduct dating from 1890. It was my wife’s birthday so we chose this place, Biergarten Schiffmuhle Minden, largely because of the lovely view of the river from the outdoor tables. We enjoyed the schnitzel too.

Boat in Kalenburg

kalenburg barge

Kalenburg is a tiny village that is split by the canal. It is perhaps the most lovely navigable canal section in the country. Geithoorn is overall more charming but its canals are too small for boats in the size range of our 12 meter boat Viking. I write about it here https://garyjkirkpatrick.com/wandering-about-the-netherland-east-part-2/

Drawings of Caravvagio paintings

After seeing the Caravaggio and His Times Exhibit in Rome last week I did some rough-ish drawings of some of his paintings in conte crayon. The man certainly could draw very well in the manner of his day. That did not make him unusual as an artist for that time. Rather it was his perfecting the dramatic use of lighting in his paintings.
