davidwelsh - artist and painter of provence and the provençal landscape
  
Original daily impressionistic  paintings  of Provence, the Vaucluse and Luberon Valley, impressionist paintings  of  Vineyards, Sunflowers, Wild poppies, paintings of Lavender fields and Cyprèss trees. 
rugged limestone mountains of the Provençal landscape.Still life paintings of produce from local market stalls, wild and gentle seascapes from the Bretagne coast of North West France 
to the Mediterranean coastline, glorious evening skies and vibrant colours that make you want to be in Provence.

Provence  
is a land apart,
a Region of outstanding beauty and gateway to the South of France.

I want the Provence I represent to be sensual and aromatic, with morning mists, shimmering light,
and where intensity of heat is reflected in every stroke of colour used.
I want colour to intensify the drama of the encounter,
rhythmic use of the soft pastel to energise the surface used.
I want to remind the viewer that they are confronting a rough hewn 
artfully constructed piece of work.
Toujours
Provence
