"This momentary impression is so important, whehter it is a storm or the wind or the horizon vanishing in the fog. This is so visually gripping that you have to feel and capture it. And because this is subject to permanent change, you are forced to paint quick, which increases the dynamic. Later I render these first "plein-air" impressions on larger canvasses in lengthy processes."
Rainer Fetting in an interview with Heinz Stahlhut, in: Rainer Fetting u. Heinz Stahlhut, Fetting, Cologne 2009, p. 375.
