FRENCH COUNTRYSIDE LANDSCAPES

FRENCH COUNTRYSIDE LANDSCAPES.

A SHORT STORY OF THE LADNSCAPE ARTWORK.

Since the painting exists, contemporary landscapes artwork, as we see it to day, is the result of a long evolution. In the middle age, landscapes appear only as an additional decoration to the main subject of the artwork.
During the fifteenth century a landscaping tradition began to emerge with the flamish and dutch painters. Landscapes began to gain in importance but they were not still the main subject of the artwork.
In some of the canvas of VAN EYCK, by example, landscapes can be seen behind a door or a window opened. they give to the painting a spatial dimension, a desire to go and see what happens further on.
Later , VERMEER, began to empower landscape particularly with the famous “view of delft”.
Next, other painters like CONSTABLE began to paint canvas with landcapes as the main subject of their artwork, to arrive to impressionists painters who consacrete utterly, landscapes as the main subject of they artwork.

HOW, AS A CONTEMPORARY ARTIST PAINTER I CONCEIVE ARTISTICAL LANDSCAPE.

To paint peaceful countryside landscapes, typical ancient villages, gardens, forests, where whatever are the seasons, people's life is closer to the nature are my prefered painting subjects.

Depecting natural sceneries, painting vast and sunny landscapes, capturing beauty of some lands, also finding landscapes that invite you to rambling and dreaming is, for the artist painter i am, a real pleasure.

When I wander in the countryside after the harvest, I cannot resist the desire of painting this kind of rural landscape with its pretty bales and its charming ancient houses

Acryl on canvas

I liked the graphical aspect of the ruins of this old house in the middle of the countryside, with its strangely formed timber frame, with its cob walls and the holes in the roof that suggest an abstract artwork.

This landscape understood as an harmonious play of diversified shapes, of warm colors, with the stream of the river, awake in us quiet feelings linked to a pastoral poetry.

With snow absorbing noises, a deep silence is emerging from this frosty landscape. The chiaroscuro and pastel tones of the wintry light give interesting contrasts with the shining colors of the snowpack.
