Koenigssee by evionn Koenigssee by evionn
Königssee with St. Batholomä and the mountain Watzmann in the background

Berchtesgarden painting: [link]

I made this as a Christmas present for my father. We used to go there on holiday... ages ago.. and my father dreams of visiting the mountains again, but due to his age and all I don't think he ever will... so, well since my old photographs are like really old I thought of painting it for him...

done in water colour in approx. 3 hours

lessons learned: mountains and sky are not so difficult as I always thought... the devil lies in the detail.. not happy with the front row of trees, not enough details and not what I had in mind.. buildings are also not as difficult as I had anticipated... getting better with the water...

Thank you very much!
We went there when I was younger a few times and I really love the landscape. It must have been really lovely to live there.
