In the still of the night

Oil on canvas, 50 x 70 cm.

The Haus des Meeres is a public aquarium in Vienna, one block south of Mariahilfer Stra├če. It is inside a concrete flak tower built during World War II. My daughters love going there, and as I would like to paint all of Vienna’s flak towers it was a natural subject for a painting. I particularly like how the building at the left hand side has come out – although it was difficult to get the colours how I wanted them (but then, isn’t it always…)
