The pearl of the Alps

Oil on canvas 60cm x 72cm, Sisteron, a beautiful town in the High Alps region of France, has been nicknamed the Pearl of the Alps, due to its stunning beauty and dazzling reflection of the water at night. The stream meanders along the town, and the painting was depicted with linear perspective to accentuate the castle on the summit of the hill-- the most distinguishing feature of the town.
