I painted a study for this piece on the train from Lyon to London after a day of touring the Beaujolais region in France. I completed the final painting the second I arrived home so that I wouldn't forget the colors. When I sketched the scene, it was late afternoon, which made the sky look purple compared to the distant hills. This piece is oil on canvas board, so framing is optional.
The day I walked into my first painting class changed the way I see the world. I love to study the shapes, colors, and light around me. I am a diligent student constantly trying to expand my understanding of different techniques in oil and watercolor. I often set up lessons for myself and don’t move for hours once I get started on a piece. Painting is my reward.
