Pointe du Raz, France is part of a series of tiny landscape paintings on paper. Most of the landscapes carry some significance to me, but ultimately convey a sense of calm and stillness. I lived in Brittany, France near Pointe du Raz and often think back to the tranquillity of the landscape.
Choppy brushstrokes and translucent layers of paint add a slight bit of movement to this beautiful land (and sea) scape.
This painting comes unframed
This tiny painting can be displayed flush in a 5 x 7 frame, or (my recommendation) is to frame in a larger format with a 1.5 inch to 2 inch mat. An example is to select a 9x12 frame with a white mat board that has a 5x7 opening.
This painting would be a beautiful addition to a gallery wall, or could stand on its own staged in a small space or on a mantel. The possibilities are endless.
5 x 7 inches, vertical format, unframed
Acrylic paint on gessoed 140 pound paper
Paper has torn / rag edges
Signature in pencil in lower right
White boarder around the painting (just over 1/4 inch around), note this is not a crisp boarder, as there is some paint bleed
Some lavender pencil strokes are evident from a preliminary sketch, adding a little burst of color in the sky
Note: The top level of paper is torn slightly in the lower left boarder from tape removal, this does not impact the overall visual experience of the painting
