Gordes on a hot afternoon

Gordes (oil on wood 25cm x 32cm)

Painting the impossible, here.  I am trying to paint the space around the buildings as much as the buildings themselves - the sky becomes dominant.  The  idea is to get as much as possible down in a couple of hours, shuffling around chasing shade.  It was 35 degrees C!  Like many of my current sketches, it is painted on an earthy red ground.


  1. i'm loving your latest work, david....especially like the red ground and large shapes.

  2. It doesn't look too impossible at all, I like it. :-)
