Karst Landscape – finished state

oil painting of karst limestone landscape
‘Karst Landscape’ (St.Avit de Senieur, Dordogne)
Finished state
Oil on Canvas

large oil painting…



The bright spring sunlight has returned. Seeing it again gave me the prompt that I needed to finish off this large oil canvas fom last year. Sometimes a painting needs a year or two (even more sometimes) before it arrives at completion.

See the work in progress & some commentary in the post : Karst Landscape at the End of Winter (in the category rocks or WIP)

“Karst topography is a landscape shaped by the dissolution of a layer or layers of soluble bedrock, usually carbonate rock such as limestone.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karst
