Sketches

These emerge from motifs in the landscape or from pure imagination.

Dream images
In seven adjacent leaves the journey begins with a broad connecting gouache brush stroke.
In further steps poems emerge on each sheet and these are then again unified by a broad brush stroke.
In the last step each image attains its own individuality, by highlighting nuances. Thus, each image tells its own story and together they reflect a journey to the Middle East along the Arabian Incense Road.

Morning impressions in charcoal
Still free of sensory impressions, I use a single gesture with charcoal powerfully to express my early morning mood. I tend to expand these coal graphics at a later stage. They can easily be used as reinforcing symbols or vignettes to your texts.
