View of the Loire river.
Before being this majestic river bordered by the most beautiful castles of France, near its source the Loire is a river that fights its way through the volcanic mountains forming wild gorges. This is where I live and I like to paint it through the seasons and changing lights.
This landscape is painted “alla prima”, with lively and spontaneous brushstrokes to attempt to capture the momentary effects of sunlight , the movement and the atmosphere.
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.
