I don’t know why but I like some of my travelling pictures so much that I want to turn them into a print. That’s what I did with this picture of Loch Lomond, which was taken during our trip to Scotland. I liked the wild, unspoilt nature there a lot.
I’m quite happy with this woodcut, especially how the two plates and colours mix.
Using our Easter holidays for a short city trip, we went to Edinburg for a few days.
Having grown up in a medieval town myself, I still wonder how these historical places resemble each other.
You will find narrow alleys and stairways, beautiful cathedrals, combining Romanesque and Gothic architecture, as well as a castle on a hill serving as the landmark of the city.
As a booklover I was especially impressed how literature and writers have influenced the city – there are not too many cities where you find a museum dedicated to the country’s most famous writers as well as a station named after a novel…
Unfortunately we only had one day to visit the countryside, the untamed nature around the beautiful Loch Lomond and the Trossachs, but I am quite sure that this was not our last visit to this beautiful country…
