Artist's Description

"Senanque Abbey near Gordes in North West Provence is a popular destination. Fragrance of Lavender seem to fill the whole valley." The building is actually more grey and shows it's age but when view during the right time of day can seem quite warm and inviting. I chose to paint it with warm colours which I felt worked well with the purple shade of lavender which I also strengthened for a more dramatic feeling. Situated amongs hills it's history goes back to the tenth century reign of Ramon Berenguer II, Count of Barcelona, Count of Provence. It's Romanesque architecture housed Cistercian Monks who over the decades have lost and then regained it as their house of whorship, today the inhabitants grow much of the lavender around it and tend honey bee colonies for polination purposes.
