John Dyer Painting. Picking Lavender, Aurel, Provence, France.

John Dyer's painting of the lavender at Aurel in Provence uses a warm palette of colour. Rich purples and soft lavenders sit against the Naples yellow of the earth. You can almost feel the heat and hear the sounds of Provence in this delightful small study by this acclaimed British artist. Aurel clings to the hillside and swifts fly through the sky whilst local characters collect the lavender.
