That sketch just works as the others have pointe out. I think it is just a bit more detail in the church and the interplay of cool and warm colors. Great job with it!

Nice paintings. There's something about the first one that looks cool. Also the book illustration is helpful.

Re: Oil Sketches - Bavaria

Thanks Christopher. I appreciate your comments.

Thanks Randy. I am not good at pencil sketches and am trying to do them in fluid acrylics. This was my second attempt. It is fun.

Thanks Heather. Sunshine does marvels for a painting.

Thanks Michael. Warm/cool (burnt sienna/black) sketching is educational for me but the choice between warm and cool is not always obvious.

Thanks Wes. I will build on the sketch a lot in acrylics and then try it in oils. Learning to paint from a sketch is something I would like to try.

Thanks Rob. For me Carlson's Landscape book was boring but ideas from it keep coming back into my head. I am glad Randy triggered the memory.

Thanks again. Gary

Re: Oil Sketches - Bavaria

Great paintings. I really like that third one, the winter one in Straubing. There's something magical about that one. That winter scene with that bright sky has a joyful atmosphere, kind of reminding me of Christmas without even seeing any decorations. You paint very well both summer and winter seasons. I like that contrast you have in this painting, with those darkened pine trees against the whiteness of the sky and the snow.

Re: Oil Sketches - Bavaria

Thanks Andre. Simple sketches are sometimes as much fun as paintings. Gary

Re: Oil Sketches - Bavaria

Well I was sold as soon as I saw the title! These are super Gary. I love the sky in the first and the very typical scene portrayed in the second. It must be all the more fun painting them, knowing you will be there very soon. Very evocative paintings and I am very jealous of your up-and-coming trip!!

Re: Oil Sketches - Bavaria

Thanks Trudi. I showed my wife a couple of your paintings the other day and told her that you liked Germany as well as we do. We are flying into Munich and out of Amsterdam this time, seeing a bit of Northern Germany. Gary
