Les Cordiers

Orchard at Les Cordiers (oil on board 32cm x  25cm)

This is a painting made of a part of a much larger painting, using some drawings and etchings that  I made of this place as supplementary  material.  It's about 200 meters from where I am sitting.  I love cloud shadows, they make me aware of the huge volumes that I am trying to deal with in landscape paintings.  You can see the reddish ground peeping through in places - it seems to really activate the greens.
