I painted this scene of the Jura Mountains from life situated on the outskirts of the picturesque village of Givrins in Switzerland.

I headed out quite early and the clouds were hiding the mountains so I worked up the foreground and middle ground as best as I could in the hope that the sun would break through later in the day.

Luckily the weather and light improved and a low hanging mist created a great atmosphere in between the mountains. A thoroughly enjoyable one to paint.

If you would like to know more about this particular piece or organise a studio visit to see the painting in person then please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
