Near La Gacilly, Brittany
24" x 30" - acrylic on canvas - $450
While travelling in Brittany last May, we drove through and stayed in an area near the small 'commune' (think village with a population of 3000+) of La Gacilly. One of our stops to stretch our legs was near this small creek, and I took a number of photos, liking the contrast between the various horizontal 'bands' (of water/reflections, shoreline, land and sky) and the verticals/diagonals of the trees cutting through the space. As the painting evolved the lily pads and reflections in the water became the focus. Below are some of the stages as the work progressed. Good memories and good fun.
