|Pine Tree at Bonnieux 'bleu'|
11 " x 8" - water colour
|Pine Tree at Bonnieux 'rouge'|
12" x 9" - water colour
Both paintings are based on some fabulous trees at Bonnieux – a perched village in Provence – where I spent a morning painting, earlier this summer. I loved the negative spaces created by the fluid, curving tree branches. I enjoyed working in water colour for a change - a medium that lent itself to creating the shapes of the foliage and playful colour.
