Light Catcher, Provence Tree Landscape

Light Catcher WIP 
by Marion Hedger
Provence Landscape
18x24cm oil painting on MDF canvas panel

The light filtering through the trees and catching the leaves appealed to me. This was taken on the walk through the Chateau La Cloche sculpture walk.

Some work is still needed on the path and shadows.

The bridge in this painting is an actual artwork in the Chateau la Coste art and architecture walk See here for details.. It was the light on the rushes under the bridge that caught my eye.
It was a very windy day and I hope I caught some of that in the rushes.

Over the weekend I took a couple of days out of the challenge to visit a sculpture park in Chateau la Coste vineyard about 2.5 hours drive away from home. The sculpture park was well worth the trip. Sculptures are placed all around the vineyard and the walk is about 2 hours long with a lot of up hill thrown in. It was very unusual and very well thought out. See here for details.

As a consequence I am all over the place with posting and which days I have posted LOL. I shall have to collect my thoughts together and get organised again.

Days 1 to 15 of the 30 paintings in 30 days challenge

See them all HERE

So far so good. I painted yesterday but do not have a photo of that yet.

I am flagging today. It might have something to do with be up very early and going into Nice to clean my holiday apartment and then meeting people at the airport and not arriving home until lunchtime without having had any breakfast!

Hopefully I will get a second wind later this afternoon.

I am going away tomorrow for a couple of days so shall play catch-up on Tuesday.
