Camargue Sunrise palette knife painting in oil

Camargue Sunrise with flamingoes
18x24cm oil on MDF canvas panel
Painted with a palette knife

Last year we took a trip around the Arles area and on the way home stopped off at the Carmague a wetland area to the west of Marseilles.
We saw lots of flamingoes, egrets, black bulls and the obligatory white horses.
This is the first of my Camargue paintings and I plan to do several more. It's quite an interesting mix of the flat pools of marshy waters with the choppy waters of the Med as a backdrop.
