Winter light

‘Light is a thing that cannot be reproduced, but must be represented by something else – by color. (Paul Cezanne)’

An easy choice of cool colours for this little panel. Painted on site in about 2 hours, this is a view of the hillside in the weak afternoon sun. The river Boutonne runs in a number of smaller riverlets and subterranean watercourses around the valley here as it continues it’s way towards the Atlantic.
