Chateau Garden

Chateau Garden
12 x 16 Oil Painting
by Pat Fiorello

Completed this painting this week based on a scene I saw while visiting a  beautiful Chateau in France this summer.  The place is called Vaux Le Vicomte. My main objective was to see how I could suggest the feel of the lavender flowers in the front without overdoing it.

Here's the reference photo which inspired the painting.   I repositioned things a bit and simplified it to improve the composition. Also changed the angle of the dark trees in the back  to give it a diagonal for more movement and also not to split the page in half.
