Ruelle rouge à St-Valery. 2015. J.Harms. 29x39cm. Acrylic on paper.
When I decided to paint a serie of views on St-Valery-sur-Somme, this particular narrow street escaped my notice at first. But while checking out the pictures again, I was immediately drawn by the red hues. I can feel the warmth oozing from those brick stone walls. I remember vividly how warm it was, and how lucky I was to visit a place with this quality of light to it.
