Landscape of Auvergne, in the very heart of France.
Painted from my studio overlooking the Loire River gorge.
I am always lured by the beauty of the subtle muted colours of a grey day. I particularly enjoy painting the lifting haze.
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.
