Andreas Kruse - an artist whose oeuvre spans across the board. He devotes himself not only to marine painting, but also to the north German landscape...
His painting is characterized by realism. His plein air paintings are often the basis for larger works. Working in the open air, exposed to the weather, wind and sun, is his great passion. It is a great change from studio work and is also used on his painting trips, for example in Denmark, the Netherlands and all over northern Germany - there also on board traditional sailors.
Nothing beats the spontaneity of plein air painting. Because plein air painting is always a race against time, changing weather conditions and sunlight - high-performance sport for a painter! You can find many examples on this website.
