Riverside Quarter, Luneberg, Germany

This is a historic attraction in Luneberg, Northern Germany. I took this photo while visiting this town in March 2011. I was initially attracted by the boat in the centre but I had to include the rest of the settings in the painting which seemed a daunting task. I took a long time over it doing it in parts but tried to maintain the focus on the boat while the other objects are merely indicated without much detail. The water and the reflections was the last item to add and I knew it is going to either destroy the painting or enhance its value. Heaved a sigh of relief when I finished the painting though there were heartbreaking moments it could have gone either way! Here is the finished painting. Hope I summed up the subject and the atmosphere adequately.

Thanks for viewing!
