Switzerland – Cabins in Snow
Watercolor Paintings by Sabina von Arx
Cabins in the Grison Alps
Wooden cabins and barns in the wonderful winter landscape in the Sertig Valley, Switzerland. The Sertig Valley is located in the municipality of Davos, south of the town, in the Swiss canton of Graubünden (Grison). The small village of Sertig (at 1,861 m) is accessible by road, 15 min. from Davos.
Cabins in the Bernese Alps
Beautiful view on the three famous swiss mountain peaks called Eiger Mönch and Jungfrau close to the village of Grindelwald. The Eiger has an altitude of 3,967 meters above sea level and its “North Wall” has a rather fearsome reputation. The three mountains tower over nearby Grindelwald, a popular hiking and skiing destination in the Swiss Bernese Alps.
Cabins in the Valais Alps
The most famous mountain of the Valais Alps is the Matterhorn on the border between Switzerland and Italy. It is a well-known mountain due to its near-symmetrical pyramidal peak with an altitude of 4,478 metres (14,692 ft), making it one of the highest summits in Europe. The mountain overlooks the Swiss town of Zermatt, in the canton of Valais. The painting shows cosy wooden barns close to Zermatt.
My Artistic Approach
I do chose a semi-abstract approach for my watercolor paintings. Therefore I change the local color to powerful tones and shades of atmospheric light. So the painting depicts a dreamy world of wonderful holidays. Also see my other Posts with paintings from Europe Provence France – Old Village of Gordes and Italy – Pai Sopra on Lake Garda. Art Prints on paper and canvas prints are available in different sizes and qualities. Visit my online art gallery for more paintings of mountains and winter sceneries
