Carcassonne, classic view

A timeless painting to give you pleasure every time you see it on your wall


Carcassonne and the Aude Painting

I have the good fortune to have visited Carcassonne and it’s environment 6 times which certainly helped with my settling on how and why I have chosen my composition.

My intention here is to share with viewers, a sense of painterly power by using my vision of how the complete landscape painting would be and especially, an intuitive not a deliberate choice of colors and textures.

This painting is also influenced by Feng Shui  ideas that encourage and inspire a positive atmosphere in a home or work place.

If you like what you see here you will love the original.


My favourite way ro visit Carcassonne, is to park in the new town (recommend and easy) then take the stroll to the old city.

To truly appreciate the qualities of this luminous landscape you do need to see both the original painting and this very special city.


Plum pudding and lobster salad

Flattery of the highest order, I was particularly please to hear one of my best friends, all be he of ‘conventional’ tastes refer to a part of this painting as looking like “plum pudding”.

The painting started fast, loose and intense hence a friend describing this painting as “plum pudding & lobster salad”,  a term used to to describe some of the illustrious J M W Turner’s paintings.

Turner has since early days at Art college, been one of my heroes.

He had some of his work described as ‘lobster salad’ hence my delight in my mate’s choice of phrase.
