The Isar runs through the medieval city of Landshut in Bavaria. The river is swift and clean filled with fish and all manor of waterfowl. There are several sections of the old city wall that once protected the city from intruders and a beautiful gothic bone white castle up on the bluff that stands like an ancient sentinel watching over its beloved hamlet.
Towards the end of my recent three month stay in Landshut I found my self returning over and over again to this one particular spot to draw and paint. I don’t really know why but it just called to me and after hours and hours city in this one spot it became mine. I owned it and this painting is my title and deed to this magical spot in Landshut Bavaria.
I always paint with the best oil paint I can find. This painting is on heavy cotton canvas stretched over a custom made poplar wood studiobeerhorst stretcher.
This painting can be taken off the stretcher and rolled for easy and cost effective shipping. This is how I got this painting back to the States from Germany.
