Place du verdun , Castelnaudary le matin


A cold morning in Place du verdun , with the low sun illuminating a beautiful fa├žade ,
sadly- there are a lot of beautiful buildings here in a neglected state.

Final version

Mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the midday sun






It started enthusiastically , then came the clouds !, so Pierre had to return the next day ! I had only just started when the sun disappeared again!
After a series of mad bursts of activity during every bright patch , the
shadows finally changed too much and I had barely finished the head.

Disappointingly , I had to finish the study with the aid of photographs.

I will post the finished painting soon .

Exaggerating colour to achieve luminosity


I consider myself a tonalist painter , but have been exaggerating colour
in order to convey the effect of bright sunlight.

This painting was done completely from life and from my colour
sketch posted a few weeks back.It measures 28 x 20 inches.
