Jill Steenhuis is an American painter who loves Cézanne.  She lives locally with her family and paints in the master’s footsteps.  I love her colourful, impressionist-style work with its exuberant brush-strokes and was fascinated to see these two videos, filmed by her son of his mother hard at work in Le Tholonet, creating oil-paintings of Cézanne subjects.  Starting work on a blank canvas is deeply scary, so it is interesting to see how a professional attacks that white space!
