It must have been a glorious walk.
WAOW cette lumière dans les Dentelles ! Un ravissement ! C'est un vrai grand coup de coeur, bravo Julian !
Julian,you show us here,that you are free of any technical restraints;it reminds me of the fluidity,the flow of colors,the brightness of Matisse.The path as a river with plumes of smoke,this shimmering foliage,so lively,the hill,like a gigantic wing of blue feathers,all allow us to commune with you;in joyful mood.
A beautiful cascade of sunlit color.
A lovely change to your usual style (which I also really like). This is so free and flowing - absolutely gorgeous
Julian, WOW this painting is stunning!!! Tish.
C'est vrai!! STUNNING! Love that violet blue and the touch of pink sneaking in!
Coming back on your painting of olives and bread you did mention the use of 450 w daylight light for this work.Is this what is needed for this kid of "eclairance rasant"? this seems to be a lot!
musical magic on canvas ... sorry.... board;)
I do love the light and shadows. And also the double complimentary colors.
Like a stained-glass window. Beautiful!
Julian, your paintings are the bright spot in my busy life. Thank you for painting!
Bravo Julian! You have captured the essence of this area in the deployment of light and colour in this painting.
Absolutely Gorgeous! I love it!
You are obviously enjoying your different surroundings-wonderful confidence in this little gem with all the right values - love it!
I use two 450w fluorescent photography lamps that have a rating of 6000K which is close to daylight, one for the setup and one on the painting and palette. I don't have any other illumination in the room and they are quite soft lamps. I find it best to stick to a fairly limited palette so that you don't get any nasty surprises when you see the picture in daylight as most lamps will have problems with one or other of the colours of the spectrum—of course I prefer daylight but winter can be very dark in the studio
You should sell this one as a print. I absolutely love the texture and the lighting. Just stunning.
So lovely and full of life, you can almost hear the whispering leaves wishing the world a splendid day!
