A semi-abstract oil painting inspired by my time spent living in Paris, close to this French Park. This view is at the end of the afternoon, in late Summer, when the trees are heavy and the chess players, who during the day sit in the shade, have gone home. The shadows are long, with the sunlight falling through onto the path in the distance. The trees offer further shadow in the far background, which has been left soft and mysterious.
The trees are painted with textured brushstrokes, in glossy oil, to reflect the weight and shade offered by the late summer foliage, with thin layers of paint built up in areas.
Delicate sweeping layers illustrate the cool areas beneath. The use of calming greens and the bold expressive shadows give this artwork a modern and contemporary feel.
Painted with Michael Harding Artists Oil Colours on a mounted wood board. The edges are left clean, showing the grain of the wood and it is designed to be displayed unframed. The artwork is signed and dated on the back and comes with a signed Certificate of Authenticity.
All my work is very carefully wrapped for shipping. This piece will be wrapped in tissue, two layers of protective foam board and bubble wrap, then placed in a sturdy cardboard box. If you purchase more than one piece, I will adjust the shipping cost and refund the difference to you.
If your destination is not shown, please message me, and I will happily get you a shipping quote.
