Marienplatz S/U, 30 x 30 cm, oil on canvas, ©2011 Julie Galante.
Marienplatz is Munich’s iconic main square, and it seems like a natural subject to take up if you’re painting this city. I do think it’s a lovely place, but it just doesn’t call to me the way other parts of the city do, so I haven’t painted it very much. This particular scene was fun to paint, though, focused more on the entrance to the underground trains and less on the monumental architecture.
