Again and again Balwé undertook"painting trips" to Holland, England, France, Spain, and Italy.However, he found his home in Fries on Lake Chiemsee, where he hadhis residency since 1927. commento : Characteristic of Balwé's paintingsare strong, pasty colours and vigorous brush strokes. He loves"strong colours and the contrast between light and dark. Whateverhe sees, he powerfully captures, and his joy, his ability toexperience the visual world has a span that knows no hesitation ina few moments. The Attic Islands, Provence, Dutch canals, and theChiemsee landscapes, all move him in the same way - however hegives each image a specific character. There is always a clearstatement, a hearty, one might say primitive testimony, whichillustrate Balwé's to a certain degree naive belief in creation."(Translated from Sailer, Anton: The painter Arnold Blaw, in:Exh.-cat. Arnold Balwé. Kunstverein Ludwigshafen am Rhein, 1970,p.3).
