The Big Tree at Les B

The Big Tree at Les B
36" x 36" - acrylic on canvas - $700
This tree is down the path from the house at Les Bassacs in Provence, where David and Liz run their painting holiday business (for lack of a better term) called Arts in Provence.  
It has figured in various plein air paintings I have done there, and also in later studio works. 
Of course I have taken liberties with palette and interpretation. I love the red foreground and violet sky  surrounding the tree and the blue, green and yellow complementaries in the foliage.  Yummy colours. Love this one - a good tonic for dreary grey winter days.
