    Using Impressionist-style short strokes of his paintbrush, Jaudin has emphasised the illusory effect of scattered light which makes distant vistas appear blue and violet. The result is a peaceful, idyllic moment captured on canvas, with hills rolling in the background beneath a champagne-pink sky of exaggerated pointillist dabs of paint. Figures that appear to be washing clothes in the expansive lake are dwarfed by the landscape, giving the scene a heightened feeling of peace, quiet, and tranquillity. The reflected buildings in the water are crisp and strongly defined – a motif Jaudin has explored in other works where boats or riverbanks are perfectly mirrored by still waters.
