Jenny visits Le Primatice. 2016

Jenny visite Le Primatice.

On a cold sunny day, my sister Jenny and I decided to go for a stroll at the Abbaye de Chaâlis. Half hidden in the forest, what is left of the abbey still stands, as well as other historical buildings. The small chapel in this painting has beautiful murals from the Primatice.

Portree is Skye’s main town. It’s a very pretty place. The usual view people remember from Portree are the colorful houses lining the bay. I admit I really liked those little houses but I came across the view I painted while wandering down the city. It was a gloriously sunny day, and over the roofs, I spotted this particular riviera-esque view. I couldn’t quite get over the color of the sea.

I was lucky enough to visit Skye during a very sunny 2 day journey. Anyone who crosses the  Skye bridge, knows they are entering a very mystical land. On an artistic level, rural landscapes have not been my favorite things to paint. The lines I see so easily in urban landscapes are more difficult to decipher in rural landscapes. I suppose the more I’ll practice this terrible artistic flaw of mine, the better I’ll get. Hopefully.
