When walking along the Ouvèze river during spring, lush vegetation, bird songs and fresh fragrances fill your senses.

The colour green takes centre stage and works with the dappled light that filters through the foliage to add a touch of magic here and there.

The painting could have been titled ‘painting the light’.

While predominantly green, dabs of other colour lift it. Light purples, blue and orange/reds capture the diffused light that radiates in a series of spots on the water surface.
