Abbaye de Senanque, Lavende

Medium: Oils on canvas

Original Size: 61cm x 76cm

The Abbaye nestles in a valley in a mountainous region of Vaucluse.

The lavender scent seems to be carried along by the workaholic bees.

The oranges and tangerines of the soil are heightened by the violet and purple colours climbing up the walls creating deep violet and purple shadows.

In the distance there is a glimpse of the Med.

I wanted the whole composition to be a celebration of Summer.
