Daily painting: everyday Munich

Munich - Sendlingertorplatz, 18 x 24 cm, oil on canvas


Munich is such a picturesque city, from the monumental churches and town halls to the calm, peaceful English Garden. So many scenes to paint! This week I’ve been doing some daily paintings that focus on parts of the city that aren’t necessarily famous or iconic, but interesting all the same.

I find myself leaning towards scenes in pedestrian areas, such as the first one of these two, because I like the absence of cars. I understand the necessity of parking, but damn those parked cars lining almost every street in the city sure do ruin many otherwise beautiful scenes. I’m just going to have to get better at imagining them out.

    Beautiful paintings, you have a wonderful and distinctive style. I love the light and colour in the top one. (O.K. I said ‘top one’ because I was too lazy to type ‘Sendlingertorplatz’ but I forgot I can just copy/paste :) )

    Great paintings! It’s awesome that you are so dedicated to your work. I’ve kind of fallen off of the wagon with my work. Between *finally* graduating from college, finding out I was pregnant and dealing with unexpected depression and anxiety I have not had the motivation to do all that much! Keep it up!

    Happy ICLW!

    Oh, wow!! You are such a great artist!!! I admire those who can paint, because I can draw up a storm but my paintings always resemble that of a five year old’s! Following you now!

    Thank you all for your kind comments! I appreciate them more than you know.

    @Dave – Those German place names are a mouthful sometimes, aren’t they? I once got reprimanded by a website because my address had too many consonants.

    @Laurie – Sometimes life has a way of eating up all my motivation, too. I hope you find yours again soon.

    @Whitney – Welcome! Thanks so much for following. :)

    everyday Munich looks fair and lovely.
    may good fortune await you.
