This is my impression of a scene in St. Paul de Vence near Nice in France. It is in watercolour on paper, measuring 162mm × 250mm. It is called ‘Galerie.’ While I was still at Nice I began laying it out in pencil from a photo I took and printed at 15cm × 10cm.
The lantern in the photograph just above seems to have become part of, perhaps, a bay window in the painting on top. It is difficult for an engineer like me to be happy with a painting they create. Truth can be rather black and white for an engineer. Do not ask me to explain or justify this in engineering terms. I am wearing my impressionist hat!
For any engineers who happen to be interested in the suspension of leaves by spider’s webs, click on the photo below to open a full size version and zoom in to see the web. Nice!
