View from the Riverside, 18×24cmoil on canvas, 2017 Astrid Volquardsen
I was invited by the management of the Impire Riverside Hotel to paint from one of their rooms on the 18th floor.The hotel is directly located above the harbour. What a view, what a treat for a girl from Hamburg. And what clouds we had. The day before the storm Xavier hit north Germany and left Hamburg and it’s surroundings a little bit of chaos. But it brought also glorious clouds and rays of sunshine.

View from the Riverside. Sun, clouds, rain .. I couldn’t keep up with the fast changing weather. So I did this one color study and stayed to sketches and photographs which are waiting to be transfferred to bigger paintings.
