This painting:

I took a risk with the light, colours and traffic…

Saw this sight, had no idea which chateau it was, loved the scene and the extraordinary light that evening.

This was painted entirely on location in one inspired hit.

Sounds easy?

The trick is to be ‘in the grove’; that can take weeks to achieve, how is my secret

This is a painting that flagrantly breaks the rules of painting.

Does it work for you?

Château Lafite Rothschild is one of only ten Châteaux listed as the very best in France by the Imperial classification of 1855, a classification still in use today.

Since 1855 only one other chateau has won the right to added to the original 9 at the top of the list.
