I want to paint this since years. The inspiration comes from one of my own photographies taken during beautiful holidays at Schleswig-Holstein, where we've took a boat trip to the Hallig Hooge.
The name comes from a Celtic word hal, meaning "salt", a reference to the low-lying land in the region which is often flooded over with saltwater by the tides. A greater number of Halligen existed in the Middle Ages than in the 21st century. The very existence of the Halligen is a result of frequent floods and poor coastal protection
