Lavender Wonderland oil palette knife painting

Lavender Wonderland by Marion Hedger
palette knife painting
Oil on artist quality 3mm thick MDF canvas panel,
Size = 30x 30cm (approx 12"x12") 
An impressionistic Provencal landscapes painting featuring the scenery of Provence, France and showing the Lavender fields marching up to the distant mountains. Imagine you can smell the lavender and feel the peacefulness with only the buzzing of the bees to disturb the quiet.

About this paintinng
The thickly applied strokes add texture and movement to the oil painting, a modern use of impressionism. It is painted loosely to give a lively feel and movement to the painting and show off the colours.

I actually started this painting last year, and in anticipation of my recent annual trip to the lavender fields, I had a sudden impetus to finish it!
