This scene in the vineyards on the edge of Canet in the Languedoc was painted in the autumn of 2015. In the air the strong evocative smell of the bonfires of the vignerons. The sunlight picks out the riot of colours of the vines and the white cloud of smoke on the horizon indicates the direction and strength of the breeze. The composition has a somewhat abstract quality where the large blocks of foreground grasses, vines, purple shadowed path and sky form the basic separate elements.
