This is another collection of 3 paintings for throwback Wednesday.
When I first painted these landscapes it was a joy and I wanted to share them with you again.
Each show a different crop, a crop you can often see in Provence and when placed next to each other, they become a mini travelogue on a warm summer day.
Even though they were painted from memory, they showcase places that mean a lot to me.
The collection would look great as a set or each landscape can be bought individually.
So what do you think, do these paintings capture Provence?
What do we think of when we think of the Provencal landscape – vineyards, wheat and lavender! Here this trio of paintings takes us on a little journey through that unique landscape filled with the beauty and vibrant colour of summer. Lovely John.
Hello Chris, yes they are very much as you say a big feature of the landscape and a good way to keep time with the changing of the seasons. Thank you
