Artist's description:

There is something that lifts a painting when done 'alla prima' and directly from the subject, in this case, what is known as the 'Venice of France'. The Marais Poitevin is a large area of marshland in western France, a remnant of the former Gulf of Poitou. I painted this one over a two hour period, and the light was considerately consistent, and generated a distinct harmony of cool colour to the landscape. There is always way too much going on visually in the country side, but you can always try and simplify it a bit, and get it down.

Materials used:

oil paint
