#1-Path to les Bassacs $50 (13x11") #2-Near Lake Pukaki NZ $50 (12x12")
The first two landscapes were inspired by real places and experiences. Path to Les Bassacs is a scene I have painted a number of times because I love the path, the place and the light. I took week long painting courses at Arts in Provence in the the Luberon Valley for many years and it was always a joyful and enlightening experience. This small work on paper is done in acrylic with some pastel marks.
Near Lake Pukaki was based on a photo I took while travelling in New Zealand last January (before Covid!). Of course it doesn't show the lake but a view up a hill from it. It was a very hot day and very dry, but there were lots of wild flowers, so I wanted to show that heat with a warm colour palette.
The three paintings below are also all acrylic on paper, but are imagined landscapes.
#3-East of Eden $50 (12"x12")
#4-Heat Wave $65 (17"x18")
#5-Field of Plenty $50 (15x16")
