La Palmyre

La Palmyre mixed media on paper SOLD

This commission of La Palmyre shows a part of the French coastline up from Bordeaux and near the town of Royan. I was asked to capture the beach, waves of the Atlantic and thin line of pine trees with one of the lighthouses in the distance. The main feeling was one of open expanse and sunshine and not having a care in the world. I have visited this beach many times so it made it easier to conjure this up in my mind while I was painting it.
