Impressionist painter Henri-Edmond Cross frequently created landscapes, often with beach-bathing nudes or more mundane scenery of farmers laboring in their fields, it was this painting that really caught Erin's eye. At first it appears to be just a simplistic color gradation. But upon further inspection, you can see the mountains of the isles in the distance, and notice the shimmering golden waves. So our Pretty Palette for November should take us away on a vacation of mind, body and spirit, filled with the ocean tones of sand, surf and sky.
This painting is called Îles d’Or and really captures the beauty of this seaside landscape. I hope you will escape along with us!
