The fourth in the set of four small landscapes featuring the scenery of Provence, France and showing the vinyards, fields and distant mountains.

Here is a close-up of the knife work which is a mini abstract in itself.

The little gem is painted from some of my photos taken on a trip to the lavender and sunflower 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.
