I am creatively diving into my new project and the exhibition in St. Peter Ording. Well known for its big sands. My plein air oil studies begin to influence my pastel work and vice versa in unknown ways. The other day I read a of quote C.W. Mundy: »The power of the suggestive is much greater than the statement of reality. « That resonated deeply with me and I think my oil studies will bring me one step closer to this aim.
