Light Catcher, Provence Tree Landscape

Light Catcher WIP  by Marion Hedger Provence Landscape 18x24cm oil painting on MDF canvas panel Day 23 of the 30 day challenge
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.

See all of the paintings so far
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.

Autumn Joy Day 19 of the 30 day challenge

Autumn Joy palette knife painting day 19 of the 30 paintings in 30 days challenge. 18x24cm, Oil on MDf Canvas panel
See all of the paintings so far

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.

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.

This is a scene from Hanbury gardens. I realised I have given this painting the same title as one I painted two years ago for the 2014 challenge. I shall have to think of a new title.
I have been comparing the two paintings and the older painting is much warmer. This has made me think of warming up the shadows in today's painting. What do you think?

Siesta Time, French Village scene - Day 6

Siesta Time, French Village Scene palette knife painting by Marion Hedger Oil on 40x50cm gallery wrap canvas Day 6 of the 30 paintings in 30 days challenge 

As we take our drives out and about we always seem to hit the villages just after lunch time. The villages seem deserted and all the shops are closed giving the village a deceptive calmness.

I feel this painting needs something to give it a bit of zing, so I will put it aside for now and re-assess it in a few days.

Lavender and Yellow Provence, Day 5 of the 30 paintings in 30 days challenge.

Lavender and Yellow Provence by Marion Hedger Day 5 30 paintings in 30 days challenge 18x24cm, oil on MDF canvas panel
AVAILABLE on my website
This is a scene from our last lavender trip. We were in a different area than normal and some of the hillside were covered in brilliant yellow which contrasted so well with the lavender. This is a study in not over-working and keeping it loose with a larger painting in mind. 
By the way - the yellow was broom in full flower. Wonderful.

The Gift - Day 3 of the 30 paintings in 30 day challenge

The Gift - floral still life by Marion Hedger oil palette knife painting 18x24cm MDF canvas panel AVAILABLE
This plant was a gift from a friend. The colour of the hydrangea was really nice but the pot appealed to me more. The rough texture was very tactile.

Japanese Zen - Carnation Ikebana Day 2 of the 30 paintings in 30 days challenge

Japanese Zen by Marion Hedger Oil painting on canvas panel 18x24cm Day 2 of the 30 in 30 challenge AVAILABLE
Who doesn't love Ikebana flower arrangements. I had an urge to paint one with chrysthanthemums but they turned into carnations. I often find I start out wit one idea and as I start painting my impetus changes. Not much different to chrysanths are they!
