Landscapes – dark winter landscapes and industrial nightscapes

Over the past few months my focus has been on painting moody industrial landscapes and atmospheric deserted seascapes.

These paintings might be a bit reminiscent of my older ‘Way through the Darkness’ pictures.

I am using a pallet knife technique and more pastose  paint but am trying to add a bit more colour to these paintings compared to the Berlin themed pictures which painted in 2001.

I aim to capture feelings of melancholic isolation in a, perhaps, hard and hostile environment without human presence, but, at the same time, making them scenes of depth and beauty.
