This canvas was painted in Provence, in one of those small villages, in a courtyard called "La Treille". La Treille became famous as the place where writer Marcel Pagnol spent his summer holidays during his childhood—at the Bastide Neuve, where he is buried in the cemetery there. It is a very romantic place full of old stones and flowers. 
In this painting, two rose bushes have climbed towards each other forming a sort of arch. The style is impressionist, the colors are soothing. The composition is a bunch of intricate squares:




In this composition, the eyes goes directly in the middle of the picture. The composition is formed of sections. And the roses are forming an arch leading your eyes into the sides of the picture.

Roses are cascading from bushes in a luxuriant garden. There are white roses, red roses and pink roses. The picture is painted in an impressionist style reminiscent of Monet's style. This artwork was painted in California in a beautiful rose garden.
For this painting I created 3 sketches before I started on the canvas.

New oil painting by Dominique Amendola - Spring time in South India



Spring Time In South India


If you click on the image, you'll get a larger view.
This image is under strict copyright to Dominique Amendola. 

This painting was executed in India as the previous ones were too, right in the back yard of Ganjam village near the famous Srirangapatna town, just when Spring was beginning.
This is an oil painting on linen canvas which is a much stronger canvas than cotton and which last much longer.
The painting makes you feel like you are taking a walk in the South Indian countryside. On the left is a path used mostly by farmers to go take care of their fields. They walk or go on a bicycle and water each plant individually with a water pot plunged in the canal waters. On the right is the canal water with a little bridge to cross over.

See painting details below:




                                                           
                                 Details are showing the brush work. I have an ocher yellow glaze as an underpainting that you see showing through the brush strokes.
Just click on the images to see a larger view.

The style of this painting is impressionistic.

New oil painting by Dominique Amendola: City market in Bangalore India



City market in Bangalore, India


If you click on the image, you'll get a larger view.
This image is under strict copyright to Dominique Amendola. 

This painting was executed in India as the previous ones were too.
In this painting many Indian citizens are heading towards the market, Muslins and Hindus have the same purpose: to get groceries, fruits and vegetables. On the right side, a mosque is represented, usually painted in green as seen here.
On the foreground  some motorcycle riders are poised at the intersection. You can see on the right, a muslin couple, on the left the typical south indian Hindu  couple.
The composition is complex, almost divided in two halves: on the right the mosque and the muslin couple on a motorcycle, on the left the traditional hindus on their motorcycle rides.
It becomes all mixed up in the back where the crowd is hurrying towards the market street or coming out loaded with shopping bags. As far as the linear composition goes, the figures on the left are inviting us within the painting on a diagonal, while the muslin couple as well as the buildings in the background are forming an horizontal line, stabilising  the composition.

See painting details below:
                                                             
                                                                           




Details are showing the brush work. I have an ocher yellow glaze as an underpainting that you see showing through the brush strokes.
Just click on the image to see a larger view.

I focused on the figures in the foreground, giving them more details that the groups in the background. See the difference in the details below:
   

Detailed foreground figure



Impressionistic  details in the background
Notice how the figures do not really have defined features. 

This is a painting of a typical street market day in Bangalore, India.
