Une nouvelle collection d'aquarelles
An Artists Year in Pézenas and the Languedoc
A new collection of watercolours
This new collection of watercolours, on the theme of seasonal changes in the Languedoc during the working year of the artist, is now on display.
Nicholas paints directly from life and seasonal changes directly impact and influence the resulting paintings.
Each season, from an artists perspective, offers a new range of subject matter. The Summer months bring an intensity of light and shade while other seasons bring in a subtlety of light and atmosphere.
The idea that the landscape changes dramatically with the seasons is not a new one but within towns the change is no less remarkable. When the trees in Pézenas lose their leaves a whole new range of previously hidden subject matter becomes available. Much of the architecture becomes apparent and the skyline changes.
The sky too changes throughout the year with much more variety seen in cloud cover and effects particularly in winter and spring. The changing light offers a new perspective on both familiar and new subject matter.
Subject includes the Escale at Sete and views of Pezenas, Marseillan and other Languedoc towns and villages.
