Houses and places in Copenhagen in Watercolor

Watercolor paintings by Frits Ahlefeldt

For many years I walked around in Copenhagen painting watercolors of places and houses, learning much about both the city, its people and dynamics of places. Often I sad and talked with people in breaks, listening to stories both from locals and from travelers

I did the paintings in all times of the year, in all kinds of weather and almost always in front of the places I was painting, using only brushes, no ink or pencil, just watercolors, paper and water.

Here are some examples from my years of painting watercolors in Copenhagen:
