From up on the hill in Avignon looking across the river to Villeneuve les Avignon in France. I started with a plein air sketch and then went on to paint this larger painting in the studio. A favourite artist of mine is Camille Corot. When I was at the Louvre I saw his landscape from Avignon called “Villeneuve-lez-Avignon La Tour Philippe le Bel” from 1843. It struck a significant cord with me as I had stood in about the same place painting 171 years later. I like to think that somehow his view influenced this finished work.
