Vineyard painting - Waiting for the Bees

Waiting for the Bees - Provence vineyard painting
Oils, palette knife
18x24cm (approx. 7"x10") on 3 mm MDF canvas panels.
You may have noticed that I like painting vineyards. (As an aside - I also like drinking the end product, always in moderation of course!). They always make for an interesting painting with the lines of the vines taking your eye through the painting. Care has to be taken that you don't created tramlines and very straight lines that don't allow the eye to rest and explore.
