‘I begin with an idea, but as I work, the picture takes over. Then there is the struggle between the idea I preconceived… and the picture that fights for its own life.’ (Georg Baselitz)
Spring is well on the way here with a number of warmer days and vigorous growth in the countryside.
This little piece was painted plein air, direct from nature just outside a small hamlet called Pioussay in the south west of France.
It was a bit of a struggle to get it down quickly before the conditions changed. but fortunately the light lingered, and I was able to get it onto the canvas quite well. Only a small amount of adjustment was required subsequently in the studio.
