the vineyards where you live are among my favorite subjects you paint. these are vibrant, green and alive!
Such a familiar subject :) Now I can take a close look at how you paint them! The trees in the background are brilliant!
It all seems so simple yet there are diagonals and parallel lines and convergence points and foci but spontaneous. I'm lost. :)
I assume that your mistral winds blow, it is like our West Texas Sandstorms, except your part of the world looks a lot prettier.My wife and I are toying with the idea of coming to the south of France and hoping to fly directly to the area. Does Provence have an airport?
Everything seems in motion via the painter's deliberate brushstrokes.
I love this composition. Lots of great activity going on in this one.
