Lavender Haze Provence, palette knife painting

Lavender Haze Provence oil painting
18x24 cm (approx 7"x10")
Oil, palette knife painting
Another Provence landscape painting from photos taken last year. These small landscapes are a joy and a challenge to paint at the same time. Getting the proportions, perspective and sense of distance correct can be difficult, but the idea and colours  make it worthwhile. Using the palette knife gives a nice looseness to the painting and it is impossible to fiddle.
