This dramatic composition was inspired by a photograph that I took from the Musée Littoral on the Cap D’Antibes near Eden Roc hotel. I worked both from memory and from my iPad. The bold contrasts of the tree trunks in the foreground, the shadow form work with the sea melting behind leaves a typical impression of a Mediterranean landscape. The sharp pointed aloe provided intensive direction to the composition while the parasol pine needles bending downward added a softness to the picture.
