4. Project57 : From Moselle to Moselle

Updated: Jan 16

  • Paysage Lorrain,


Over the many months of driving from the studio in rural Moselle to points along the Moselle river to document and work 'en plein air', l often stopped, taken by a sudden change in light, cloud formations, an unexpected view of the Lorraine landscape, on the eastern side of the river, close to Meurthe-et-Moselle. Watercolours and sketches were progressively made from spots in the 'Pays du Vernois', the 'Pays du Mad et Moselle' , the 'Rives de Moselle' and the 'Sud Messin'. When the weather was too inclement, the work on paper was finished indoors at a later date, which adds further to the problems l'm finding keeping a clear chronology to project events. Some, because of their number, l now have only a vague idea as to where they were executed.

Here are a selection, a variety of watercolours, pola-paintings, etchings and mixed techniques, as well as a few paintings on canvas or wood. Some are already in private collections of french and german buyers.
