L'Isle sur la Sorgue

L'Isle sur la Sorgue (oil on board 25cm x 32cm) David Atkinson

It seems that I am becoming preoccupied with the ephemeral - shadows and reflections.  It is a bit like the fascination of painting skies (something else I like doing).  Everything changes constantly, obliging you to work in a fast and fluid way.  Reflections in water gradually reveal themselves the more you look, and it's a challenge to find a range of mark making that somehow convey all that complexity.  This small painting was made in situ in about an hour, looking down into the river Sorgue.
