Artwork description:

A few years ago, I decided to test myself by attempting a large painting of the view of the village through my studio window.
There were lots of practical things that needed sorting out.
Firstly the size. For practical reasons (e.g. like handling and portability) I thought that a triptych would be the best format.
However this decision created, in turn, its own problems.
For example, when I stand at the window and look straight ahead, I have a view over the village houses to the Marie (or town hall).
If I look left, I see across the medieval roofs to the twelfth century church of St Jean-Baptiste which dominates the village.
Turning to the right, I look down the Rue du Pont which leads to the area set aside for the lepers in the middle ages.
So, the task that I'd set myself, therefore, was to marry these three perspectives in a landscape format.
It took quite a while, and there was a time when I thought I'd bitten of more than I could chew. However, I was very pleased with the result.
Here it is, on three panels each measuring 80 cms wide by 122 cms high.
The overall size is therefore 240 cms wide by 80 cms high.

Materials used:

Acrylic paint on three panels
