Yes, this time it’s walls rather than windows. More specifically, the Berlin Wall, and the movie that was screened on the very last night of its existence. That would be the East German movie Coming Out. It’s the first East German movie I’ve ever seen, and it’s about exactly what you’d expect it’d be about.


Yes, another crowd shot like the last one! The nice thing about crowd shots is I can stick myself in there somewhere and it’s not as awkward. I’m enjoying this kind of thing, but painting that many people does take some time. Except this time they’re not lavender, they’re grey, because nothing was more Eastern Bloc than the colour grey. Or something.

Happy belated 25th anniversary of the Berlin Wall coming down, everyone!
