    Another beautiful one Ian. What I like is your colours and atmosphere. It is brilliant.

  • Thank you Béatrice. I was a bit worried about the colours having decided not to use yellow, but Sap Green is quite a yellow green. Hope I got away with it!

    You always create such a beautiful, light and airy atmosphere in your work. Love it Ian. As always beautifully done.

  • That’s really kind Jim.
    I may be giving a false sunny impression of this area of France, where in truth, it rains quite a lot, hence the verdant landscape. I prefer to dwell on the sunshine!
