Misty Morning Along The Seine

9 x 12 oil on panel
I'm still working on some smaller paintings using the photographs I took on my trip to France. Doing smaller format paintings helps me decide which ones I would like to do on a larger scale.
On this particular day our Viking River Cruise took us from Vernon to Rouen. We cast off at 6 A.M. and the weather was cool and misty. Most passengers were down below away from the cool wet breezes, but I couldn't resist the atmospheric verdant landscapes as we meandered down the Seine. The limestone showing through the hills was reminiscent of our Niagara Escarpment in southern ontario.

Love this. When the scene is this lovely,
looking at it is a must. You've captured
that feeling perfectly.
