Daily Painting: plenty of new inspiration from Oktoberfest


Dirndl Study #5, oil on canvas board, 18 x 24 cm. [SOLD]

Between my husband and I we managed to take over 1,500 photos at Oktoberfest this year. Yikes! I’m sure it will end up being a lot fewer once I sort out the throw-aways, but still I should end up with lots to work from as far as my Bavarian clothing studies go. Like this one, from a photo I took at the historical section of Oktoberfest. I just loved the hats.

I might end up doing a larger version of this one, but first I think I’ll finish my photo sorting and choose a few more favorites to work from. I better get going!

    Reminiscent of Toulouse Lautrec here and I LOVE, LOVE his paintings.

    @expatsagain – High praise indeed! I absolutely adore his paintings, too. If you haven’t been yet, I highly recommend the Toulouse Lautrec museum in Albi.

    Hats better than Mary Poppins!

    May the Muse be with you!

    Will visit again soon!

    Oktoberfest is so civilized.
