After Hot Rain

The challenge, I have often accepted, was to see what would happen by painting in inclement weather.

A pair of studies, the weather was wet but warm , a typical Midi Pyrenees summer storm, I just had to do something so donned my sea coat.

Painted on successive days from the same location, Castelnau de Montmiral, painted ‘plien aire’ by a very soggy artist, caught in dramatic mood, painted on location from beside the Lac de Vere on a hot summer days, during and  immediately after  heavy rain and thunderstorms that peel off the Pyrenees, typical of summer in this beautiful region.

The subject I chose to paint is a 3 km walk down hill passing fields and woodland to the Lac de Vere, from the bastide village of Castelnau de Montmiral.

Painted on location, these fine studies measure 40 x 50 cms (15¾” x 19¾”), available, £2,000.

This painting with its extraordinary ambience would make a fine reminder of Midi-Pyrénées, SW France, for a private collection, hotel of restaurant.
