Provence Landscape Knife Painting #2 in oils

Provence Landscape Knife Painting #2
Oil painting by Marion Hedger
Oil on board, 20x15cm (8"x6")
The second in the set of four small landscapes featuring the scenery of Provence, France and showing the vinyards, fields and distant mountains.

The landscape is painted from some of my photos taken on a trip to the lavender fields last year and is a compilation from serveral photos. I wanted a loose lively feel to these small landscapes to show the brilliant colours before the mid-day sun bleached out all the colours.
