APRIL SKY OVER THE RED HAUBARG

SIZE: 30 in. x 22 in. - 76 x 56 cm
PAPER: Saunders Waterford rough 300 g/m²






***A Haubarg, rarely also Hauberg, is the typical farmhouse of the Eiderstedt peninsula on the northwest coast of Germany and is a type of Gulf house. It emerged in the late 16th century when West Frisian immigrants brought with them the Gulf type of farm building and it was to continue to be used until the late 19th century as a farmhouse. In the Netherlands these houses are called stolpboerderij.
The word "Haubarg" means a place for piling or stacking hay (see hooiberg). As a byre-dwelling, man and animal lived for centuries in haubargs under one roof, albeit in separate rooms. www.wikipedia

BOUGAINVILLEA WITH MONARCH

SIZE: 9,4 in. x 12,6 in. - 24 x 32 cm
PAPER: HAHNEMUEHLE LEONARDO  - MOULD-MADE ROUGH 600 g/m²

I use sweet little memories of sunny moments at Fuerteventura Island. And I'm testing a new paper with a very heavy paper from Hahnemuehle. This mould made board is natural white and the blocks are glued gauzed to ensure flatness when wet. This 600 gsm watercolor board with its smooth surface texture is a prime support for watercolor paintings and it offers an excellent flow of colors and ensures hight brightness.
