Olive Grove at Les Bassacs
30" x 40" - acrylic on canvas - $700
In July I kept returning to my photos taken in Provence searching for subject matter and in particular, olive trees, which I love. (Maybe it's because I really like eating olives, or associate them with Van Gogh, or just see them everywhere in the south.) I chose a photo featuring a group of olive trees, which as you can see, is quite dark, but once 'lightened' seemed like it had potential.
Here are two of the earlier stages.
I was really happy with how this one turned out, and in particular with the palette and stylized foliage.
