Tree lined avenues are a common sight in France. They have a symmetrical sculptural quality.
This painting started life more as an arrangement of colour than as a particular subject matter as I had the colours on my palette from the previous day’s work.
From there, an image emerged slowly as if from the mist.
This muted understated piece was the result, a morning with trees silhouetted against an autumnal mist and the dawn light of morning breaking through slowly.
I would love to hear what you feel about this piece.
