St Remy II

farm buildings behind St Paul de Mausole (oil on board 25cm x 32cm)

This is a second painting made the same day as the one below.  I am trying to keep things very very simple, a limited palette, a few shapes.  I really have to start moving these on in the studio and develop them into something more substantial.  A big reference for me at the moment when working outside at the moment  are Corot's early paintings that he made around Rome and in the Italian countryside.  They were made as studies for bigger more elaborate paintings to be made back in Paris - but he kept them with him throughout his life.  I love them, and I'm too embarassed to post one on this blog.
