Mittenwald

Mittenwald was one of the many inspiring scenes I witnessed on my travels through Bavaria. We drove through this area in my old Morris Traveller which excited much interest every time we stopped to park. I don't think the Germans had ever seen such scruffy paintwork and with its old wooden frame with moss growing out of it in places I guess it was a curious sight! But it was a reliable solid car which carried us thousands of miles throughout Europe. In Mittenwald we stayed with one of our oldest German friends and enjoyed walking through the lovely mountain scenery. I painted this scene mid morning, near a stream and as I focused on ethereal beauty of the mist which always appeared to be hanging over the lower slopes of the mountains, lizards darted about and occasionally across my feet!
