Lubeck in a winter morning

I tried to create an atmosphere of a greyish foggy day which is the general weather in Lubeck winter. On my two visits the chilly and gloomy weather underscored the mood of the city which is an hour's drive from Hamburg. I used a lot of bluish grey and left everything understated to accentuate the mood. Done on a half sheet of Arches 300lb Rough paper.
Made a lot of sketches of the boats and the buildings and also did a colour study before starting the final painting. Lot of trouble but I am happy with the result! Happy viewing!
