The painting

The Colour beginnings were much discussed Helene Anselet and  in my salon here when Linda Winter and Michael Baker who visited during July 2016.

One of the subjects we discussed was the proposed painting for my “Gaillac, Surprising Vines” series of château de Meyrargues.

We discussed the location study made on 06.07.16, colour mixing, the architecture and atmosphere before I settled on the design that has become my painting of Chateau Meyragues.

The following shows some of the stages of development, the creative process of this painting, enjoy.

As I write, today,  I am working on 16 paintings in my studio, this being one,  so you can expect a lot of ‘artie’ posts here, on Facebook, Linkedin and on my blog in the next few weeks.
I plan to develop the paintings here then finish the Gaillac series on location next month; care to join me?
