16.2 ~ Lovely People


New residents have recently populated the city and surroundings


By painting quite a few figures - and partly because of the expansion and renovation of the Cochemer Bahn - I also want to 'see new faces'.

Preiser figures that I bought "white" decades ago to be painted by me are finally getting a place.

In addition, each figure should not just fill the page, but should be functional and "in scene":



~ From here and back again ~



~ Mr. and Mrs.  Bürgermeister on the platform ~



~ Salesman of Fresh Fish ~



~ The dog and his boy ~



~ Lady in a hurry ~



~ Two boys and a poodle ~




~  I come, graymalkin! ~



~ A nun, not anon! ~




In memoriam sui quae praeivit






~ Workers in the vineyard ~



~ Perdidit in alta cogitatione ~ 



~ Lost in thought ~ 



~ Fresh Beer... what else! ~



~ The mayor's gardener ~


~ The maid stays behind ~



While two 'Stiftsdamen' are on their way to do their shopping, others are in contemplative consultation.




A monk walks by, while music from the Cochemer Brassband is heard from the cloister hall 




At the fish market, with both feet firm on the ground...



... or high above the earthly noise, like this chimney sweep, quite as firm, watching at...



... to fair ladies passing by, somewhat curious about the mayor's new car



Two teachers are standing on the platform, waiting for the next train to Munich, where they will return to lecture the next day.



But this couple fully enjoys a day off in nature.




Youth going for a swim in the forest lake 




~ Little Red Riding... Boar  



Ending the day, with light at night
