Oil on Canvas. 30 x 40 cm. Shows the Rosenlaui glacier, The Wellhorn and the bridge over the Rychenbach, painted on-site (finished in studio) in late September 2021. I spent 2 on-site sessions because the light changes vary rapidly. I finished and adjusted the painting in the studio striving not to lose the spontaniety that only plein air painting achieves. I painted looking into the light (contre jour) so that I had to constantly adjust my gaze so that my choice of values and colours were not distorted by pesky afterimages. Just after the blocking in a cow some 50 m away suddenly trotted over towards me. I managed to stop her pushing my set-up over but when she started to nuzzle my rucksack and then me I had to shoo her off by waving my arms and shouting. It worked!
