acrylic on board 7,5X9,5
I painted this seascape for the Following the Masters third challenge.
It is after Le golfe de Marseille vu de l'Estaque by Cézanne, about 1885, in the post-impressionnist period.The original can be seen at New York City, at the Metropolitan Museum.
I like Cézanne's painting, which shows us the Provence's light and the stone's heat with the ochers and blues. At l'Estaque he said"I want to make the perspective by color alone".
I enjoyed working on it, maybe I should have gone on ,but there was the deadline!
