Study from a french living painter, Gilles Sacksick ( , I have seen two exhibitions of this painter, I love his variety and creativity .My  piece is  much smaller than the real painting, but I only had a postcard and I just wanted to study colors relationships. Besides I know this place very well.

Plein air, street corner

A bakery at the corner of the street, not the one I go to buy my bread though!

Plein air countryside

    Oil 15 x40 cm
    I tried to concentrate on clear value plans. I still find it too dark, and could have been much more simplified.  I cropped the foreground which   appeared useless. What I like is the light in the background, which is the thing I enjoyed doing most. I often find myself embarassed with first plans 

   This one is a very quick study just before leaving and relax...

From 1 to 20 mn, size approx 30x40 cm

Close up from 1 mn sketch I like 

I love to include background but 20 mn is a bit short for it
