Blue Car in Saignon

Blue Car in Saignon
18" x 14" -  acrylic on canvas
This is for sale - contact me for price if interested.

I spent a morning in the delightful Provencal village of Saignon last summer - mostly walking around in the sunshine and enjoying the quiet streets and magnificent views overlooking the valley. I was looking for the perfect view to paint when I came upon this scene. I did a small water colour for fun, but resolved to paint it again once home. Many months later this is the result. I particularly like the contrast between straight (vertical and horizontal) lines and those curved ones of the car, windows and doors, and the freeform lines of the vegetation and cast shadow.
