This oil painting, which is of a landscape in the south of France, is 18" x 36". It's unusual that I paint a scene this elongated, but it is fun to work with a different format. Sometimes I do perfectly square canvases too.
I like the gently rolling hills, small fields and tree-borders in this countryside, in this case creating what I felt was an appealing diagonal going up from the middle left of the canvas. I also liked working with the complementary colors of red and green in this early-summer scene where there are still bare fields but the trees are fully leafed out.
