The mountain scenery around my studio inspires me every day. This familiar landscape is different every time, transformed by the light, the weather changes, the seasons. My paintings attempt to depict this infinite variety of moods. That morning I painted a break through the clouds. I liked the stark contrast of the morning light on the grey sky and the intense colours of Spring, blue mountains in the background and green meadows. Through all these captured moments, I hope to convey the immutable and timeless character of this landscape.
This landscape is painted “alla prima” in one single sitting, with lively and spontaneous brushstrokes to attempt to capture the momentary effects of sunlight , the movement and the atmosphere.
This painting is painted with professional grade oil colors on a primed canvas. I prepare myself my canvases to create a texture specific to my painting needs and to insure them maximum longevity.
