L'Automne du Luberon II

Status: Sold Paintings
Painting Number: 1398

As we found ourselves spending more time in France, we purchased a second home in Provence in 2014 very close to our now familiar Lourmarin. The village is exceptional, touted as “one of the most beautiful villages of France”. I have painted it many times. This particular painting was done in the fall. As there is a grove of olive trees handy to stand under in their shade that looks out on the back side of the village, I have set up their many times in all lights to paint the village. Sometimes, as I mention to my art students, I will paint with the brush strokes all going in one direction, whether it be diagonal, vertical or horizontal, as I did on the lower part of this painting. Repetition can be effective.
