The Foret de Sivens in the Tarn [81] department is one of the two oldest unspoiled forests in France.

These highly original forest landscapes were created as part of a wider series of studies, experimentation and research I undertook, exploring my rare form of colour vision, miss named ‘colour blindness’,  qualities i share with some very famous painters, while based at the Painting School of Montmiral.
