Watercolour painted on 300 grams cold-pressed paper, 100% cotton.
SIZE: ca.  55 x 40 cm  ( 21,65" x 15,78").

Actually, I should call this painting "The Beekeeper of Schloss Nordkirchen." Because there is where I captured this Image.

Schloss Nordkirchen is a big Castle nearby M√ľnster and a wonderful place to take walks and spend some hours walking around the fantastic park. A little separated from the way,  I saw a small group of trees and under them, something white was moving. I was not sure about what it was because I was looking for the light, and it was a little far away.
Some steps after I could recognize the white spot as a human figure draped in white, a beekeeper. Don't ask me if it was a man or a woman, it was too late and under the hut not to recognize.
I took my camera and made a couple of photos and what you see is my attempt to capture with my paper and brushes the scene.

I have found a video on Youtube about the Castle and its park. I can only recommend the visit and maybe if you are lucky you can capture a nice moment as I did of a beekeeper taking care of its bees.
