Autumn-Wood / Herbstwald

©Micha Klann

We don’t have such intensive autumn colours in our region. The bright red tones, which can be admired on the American east coast, are completely missing here. We are dominated by beech forests, so there are more yellow and brown tones. My maple bushes in the garden did not get an autumn colour this year. Because of the dryness in summer, they had already thrown off their leaves before the beginning of fall.

I painted the picture with wax pastels and pastel chalk. I started with the wax colours and set accents with the chalks. At the end the painting has to be treated with an impregnating spray.

So intensive Herbstfarben gibt es in unsere Region leider nicht. Die leuchtenden Rottöne, die man an der amerikanischen Ostküste bewundern kann, fehlen hier gänzlich. Bei uns dominieren Buchenwälder, also gibt es mehr Gelb und Brauntöne.  Meine Ahornsträucher im Garten haben in diesem Jahr keine Herbstfärbung bekommen. Wegen der Trockenheit im Sommer, hatten sie ihr Laub schon vor Herbstbeginn abgeworfen.

Das Bild habe ich mit Wachspastellstiften und Pastellkreide gemalt. Ich habe mit den Wachsfarben begonnen und mit den Kreiden Akzente gesetzt.  Das Bild muss am Ende dann gut mit einem imprägnierenden Spray behandelt werden. 


Since 2014 I have been writing and illustrating books for children, mainly for preschool age. In the meantime I have published three animal stories. More picture books are in progress. If you are interested in readings (Kindergarten), my books or any illustration work, please feel free to contact me. I live with my family and a funny poodle in the beautiful Weserbergland, Germany.
