Sunlight, Seguret, Provence

Sunlight Seguret Provence France

Lovely street scene with all the colours of Provence and the warmth of the sun captured in the light and strong shadows.

I like this Alix. Beautiful colours and great detail on that close foliage.

This is lovely Alix, has a real sense of place.

Christine, Karen and Heather: thank you so much for your lovely comments. It's been so very dank and dark for weeks and I really needed to get it finished to cheer people up with a summer/dreaming of holidays painting. Very hard to do as acrylic dries darker and drove me mad trying to compensate for that. As for the foliage, equal insanity and a slight bit of artistic licence with the leaves or I would have got too fussy. Today is a perfect painting day, for once, but I have other things to do away from the studio.....'tis ever thus! Hope you all have a good 2022 (fingers and toes firmly crossed).

Just had a peek at your gallery- some great paintings.

A really beautiful, cheerful picture and lovely composition!

Love the sharpness in the architecture and how it emphasises the bright Provencial light -great work.

Great detail, great colours and so French,

Wonderful sense of place.

Lovely composition, style and colours.

Wow! You've made such lovely comments, Christine (twice!), Anne, Willie, Richard, Carole and Jenny. I'm so pleased it's hit the spot on a winter's day. Thanks so much.

Fabulous light and colour a Mediterranean scene captured perfectly Alix

How beautifully painted. I have been to Seguret several times myself. Beautiful village in the Vaucluse. what you painted was immediately recognizable . my compliments

Shaun and Joop, thank you so much for receiving clearly what I was trying to 'transmit' with this painting! Seguret is a very special place indeed.

I know the feeling with dark gloomy nights. This is a lift with such lovely thoughts of sunlight.

Super, just what we all need, visions of summer!

Val-Irene and Linda, thank you so much for your comments. Glad it helps you to dream.....

Beautiful colours and detail Alix.

Hang on Studio Wall

40x 40 cm. This ancient village surrounded by vineyards just screams to be painted! My first painting of 2022 but started well before Christmas, then the gloomy dark days really made it impossible to continue. Sudden rush to finish, varnish and frame as it's in an exhibition starting 14 Jan. Phew!
