Once we were visiting Nice in the south of France, when I noticed that the red terracotta roofs were glowing due to a certain afternoon light. The colour made a wonderful contrast against the greens and blues of the trees and the sea.
Red Roofs by Paul Beauvais
Paul Beauvais’ earliest influences were the works of the impressionists. The palette of Claude Monet, the textures of Camille Pissarro and the overall genius of post-impressionist Paul Cezanne. Paul became fascinated with heavy impasto in oil painting and began to use it in all of his work. As an established artist Beauvais began to free up his style and introduce a semi abstract technique. The paintings available in the gallery today represent a beautiful collection of his semi abstract work.
