This is the view from my studio in the Auvergne mountains, France.
Here I have tried to capture this fleeting moment when the sun sets and the moon rises, almost at the same time.
Having my studio facing the mountains allows me to capture those rare moments.
This landscape is painted “alla prima” in one single sitting, with lively and spontaneous brushstrokes to attempt to capture the momentary effects of moonlight , the movement and the atmosphere.
READY TO HANG: a simple painted stick of pine wood hides the sides. Color: dark brown.
This painting is painted with professional grade oil colors on a primed canvas. I prepare myself my canvases to create a texture specific to my painting needs and to insure them maximum longevity.
