Mont Ventoux

Painting below Mont Ventoux the other day, almost too beautiful to paint.  Not only is the volume of space arching over the mountain so vast and overwhelming, but there is also lavender in the foreground at the absolute peak of its colour intensity.  The challenge of getting anything of that down onto a small wooden panel in a couple of hours is absurd, but that's what I have tried to do.
