Evening at Notre-Dame d’Aubune, ©John O’Grady, 2014
Oil on Panel, 8″x 10″
Not for Sale (NFS)
This is a painting of the beautiful provençal chapel called Notre-Dame d’Aubune situated just outside the town of Beaumes de Venise known for its exquisite muscat dessert wines.
I painted this from the memory of a walk I did last autumn. I remember distinctly walking through the grasses glowing in the evening light and the blue black shadows of the trees surrounding the cream pinks of the church.
This chapel dating back to the XI or XII century is the one part of the painting that I couldn’t recall so I used a photograph to capture the architecture.
Do leave a comment, I’d love to read what you have to say about this painting.
