Landscape of Auvergne, in the very heart of France.
A view from my studio windows.
I focused here on a fragment of the landscape. That morning grey clouds veiled the rising sun. I tried to capture the soft and subtle light on the mountain.
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.
