The painting:

Domaine De La Tronque went ‘bio’ long before the term became so fashionable.

As soon the sunrises, delicate morning mists caress and nourish naturally, the vines.

That immediately attracted me.

 

I wanted to used my imagination based on years of observation and life in general.

I have chosen to keep the foreground loose, abstracted to focus our attention on the light, colours and details in the valley and on the ridge.

This landscape painting was completed on location from the roadside verge during September 2016 IMG_7962

I first really saw Domaine De La Tronque basking in the late afternoon on the 6 th of July and was immediately struck by this view from which I developed the composition for this painting.

I’d previously driven past  Domaine De La Tronque numerous times in all weathers when using a studio at Itzac 26 km from Albi where I was at that time living.

This time my ‘art radar’ was switched on and tuned.

Domaine De La Tronque was not on the original list given to me by the Tourist Information Office of Gaillac.

There were problems with two of the listed vineyards so I was looking for a replacement.

Domaine De La Tronque went ‘bio’ long before the term became so fashionable.

The view one has from the road caught my eye immediately and spoke to me, “paint me, include me”.

Pulling my car onto the verge, I got out, camera and sketch book in hand for a walk and look see.

Some compositions take ages to discover and even then need adjusting, this one gave it’s self up, needing only a change to the time of day and weather.
