Provence landscape

Started this one yesterday. It is a landscape from the south of France.
Here are the first two sessions in a reddish oxide undercoat inspired by the reddish tinge of the earth and th late hour of the scene.
It is based on my own photograph.

60 cm X 80 cm - acrylic on canvas

Almost finished this one, just leaving it unvarnished for a day or two in case I want to change anything, though it would not be major. Want to see if I am happy with the way the colors interact. One of my favorites up till now.

2 new Self Portraits in the works

Here are two self portraits I am working on. They are both based on my own photographs. The tall one (smiling) is on mdf board and is 25 cm x 40 cm and is in acrylics.

The second one is on canvas panel 40 cm x 50 cm, The base is in acrylics, but is destined to be finished in oils as I need to get more familiar with that medium.
