The Painting

Of vines, sunflowers and corn, typical of high summer in the beautiful Gaillac region of the little known and some what mysterious l’Occitane region, Tarn Province.

This very textured painting was produced mostly using palette knives,  some strokes being broad and smooth, others quite the opposite, pointillist.

Combined with a thoughtful choice of composition, strong vibrant colours inspired by the bright light of the Gaillac region, all and more combine to make a pleasing most unusual painting.

My choices are quite deliberate, to retain a sense of spontaneity and because it is important  to experiment, push my boundaries, see what happens.

The painting results from one of my many afternoon walks in the valley of mas de Boyer, Laborie, 5 kilometers North of Gaillac, where I was fortunate to live for 18 months.
