The painting

This painting was produced 90 % ‘plien aire’ at one of the many beautiful picnic spots on the Sauternes Trail, in this instance, by the river Ciron in the commune of Sauternes.

I was attracted by the romantique location shapes colours and scents.

I saw this as a further opportunity to explore the many issues of my colour vision and how to paint trees.

As I worked two families arrived and justified the place name of this little gem in the Commune de Sauternes. 

The river Ciron in autumn makes an essential mist, essential for the flavour of Sauternes wines.

In summer the river is a popular venue for children of all ages, to swim, kayaking and canoe, boats being hired locally. 

The woods are ideal for hiking and cycling, with many picnic places, a monkey park for children.

For more on the commune de Sauternes contact the office de Tourisme and try Sauternes, I hope you get to enjoy the commune of Sauternes.
