Provence River Rhone reflections

Clouds in the River Rhône, ©John O’Grady, 2014
Oil on Panel, 10″x 10″


A few months ago I visited Avignon, “La Cité des Papes” where the popes once resided. The road into Avignon runs alongside the mighty river Rhône. On a fresh December day, I managed to park up and climb down to the bank of the river.

From this viewpoint the Rhône stretched out before me towards the city, the perfect canvas to show off the quality of the clouds reflecting in the still water. It was magical.

This is a painting from memory of that special morning when the clouds were in the River Rhone.

I hope you enjoy this painting. I would love to hear your opinion.
