Love how you made a tree in the near center work so naturally.
I the the great outdoor feel and the depth of this painting, Julian.
Ventoux... Venteux that is... Windy... The disheveled brushstrokes accross the whole canvas suggest that it is windy... So the tree in the center seems to rotate as a little twister but on the spot! Even the sky and the track seem to be shaken by the wind. But no brushstrokes without motive: the artist here by the profusion of excited brushstrokes is in perfect symbiosis with the legendary mount Ventoux we feel so close.
