“Atmospheric, expressive and yet capturing the serenity of nature” – “gestural and harmonious. Little beauties for your collection”
Inspired by natural areas and based on numerous outdoor sketches Karin paintings are a representation of feeling a landscape, rather than a record of seeing it. Karin often heads out for some quick plein-air sketching. Drawing directly from life gives her a chance to experience nature with all her senses. The spicy scent of pine trees. The sun highlightening the autumn covered trees. The dense fog covering the grass. Karin appreciates these impressions and collects them as colour notes and shapes from nature. Back in her studio she translates these sketches into large canvas paintings. The final paintings invite the viewer to look closer, and discover places made up by loose brushstrokes and vibrant colours.
