On the river Orne, I observed l this man taking his boat out to go eel fishing. It was a still morning with no wind and no ripples on the water.
Figure in Rowing Boat 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.
