Hi Julian This painting is both abstract in form yet convincing in depicting the sense of place. I love the light, colour, and the clouds created by your brushstrokes. Together they herald spring in a charming place.
beautiful work Julian!
So vigorously "brushstroked"! The brushstrokes create the textures.Thin stripes,big dashes,built impastoes, strokes in relief,paint thinners there, verticales, curves of the upper roof echoing with the curves of the clouds, transparencies in the distance and in the deep blue shadow near at-hand,lights and shadows playing hide and and seek... At last the mysterious blinding lemon yellow hint so hypnotizing above the second shadow and this strange small indigo blue dash in the light olive-coloured meadow...Like a totemic hillock. A feast for the eyes and... mind.
Well Julian, I hope that you`re pleased with yourself ? Although it has been somewhat dry here in this part of England ( Herefordshire/Worcestershire borders )and indeed the sun has made a much welcome appearance at least in the passing few days. The seasonal daffodil displays here have yet to appear because we are still in the grip of a prolonged winter. If the last three or four summers are anything to go by then we may see another cold and wet effort. But you, you have managed to capture what already looks like a a sun baked vista from the south of France. I don`t quite know whether to congratulate you or unsubscribe from this tantalising view point. But, thanks anyway.
beautiful landscape!
Cool Julian! I like the abstraction look.
Gorgeous painting! Wish I could be going down that road to Bedoin!!!! I'll take this opportunity to thank Alain for his recipe for "Tarte aux oignons doux." Will try it this week!
Hi jol Did you try the ancestral recipe? Best Alain
