With “Les volets verts”, this represents another view from the bay taken from almost the same position but at another angle. I love to paint views from a higher ground looking down. This painting is the last one in my short serie on the lovely town of St Valéry-sur-Somme.

The church in St-Valery is situated on a hill overlooking the bay. From that point there’s a lovely view of old homes and a mile away, behind them , the shimmering lights of the sea.

Further along the bay, this yellow house really caught my eye. I had to paint it.

Light and shade play hide and seek in this small street in St-Valéry-sur-Somme.

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.
