Ancient Walls, detail of old French farm

Ancient Walls by Liza Hirst

oil on canvas panel - Öl auf Malplatte - huile sur carton entoilé

This is a part of our property that hasn't been renovated yet - probably one of the very first buildings that was built here a few hundred years ago. The walls really are ancient and the wood of the doors look like weathered, wrinkly old faces - very beautiful.

Hi Liza,

I love the colour in this one, with the blue underpainting.

I like the two different views and lighting situations.
