Another painting from Crestet

Here's the second one. The coulours here are more amped up than reality - I was playing around. I hope to do another  painting in the next week that is a more careful "finished" painting as opposed to these coloured painting sketches. You learn something with every piece though! This is acrylic on Terraskin.

Merci tout d'abord pour gentil mail...
Je m'aperçois effectivement que mon pays et particulièrement cette région que j'affectionne et que je connais particulièrement vous touche aussi...
Vos peintures lui rendent hommage...
Superbe travail.
Gros bisous

Un petit oubli :
Les amandiers sont en fleurs depuis hier dans la région...

Hi Kim!... You have certainly captured the mediaeval essence that still exists in this part of the world... in places... wonderfully!

The terra skin is a lovely silky surface to work on... but takes some getting use to the way it takes paint! It is great for use in the field because it returns to flat... immediately... even if it has been rolled up before.

Loved your photo exuberance... and the sculptural details. Unbelievable as you implied... given the absence of power tools. All of that drillwork... by hand! Mind boggling isn't it!

Welcome back... glad you had a great time!

Good painting!
Warmest regards,
Bruce

Hi Kim, Really like this painting and the intense colours. Looking forward to seeing more inspirations from France. Will also try terraskin as I am looking for a surface to travel with this summer. Happy painting.

Like the others have said Kim, the colours here are really cool. Don't have the artsy words for it, but I love it. Seems so alive.

I love these so called less finished pieces. They are beautiful, and make me feel like I'm there. You are allowed to amp the colours. In fact you were put on the planet to do what you're doing. So great.
