"Louis Pastour "animated Mediterranean City""Oil on canvas mounted on panel of good size, unusual format of the painter. Nicknamed the "pintre dou souléu" for his sunny palette, Pastour is above all a colorist. The work of light is the keystone of his painting. He knows all the nuances. His talent is multiple and despite, sometimes, the recurrence of his themes, he manages to surprise us with each of his works. The technique of the knife, with its generous impastos, brings power and character while its refined touch, close to abstraction surprises by its modernity. Like the fauvists he uses pure color at the end of the tube. But above all, his particular way of finding the tone directly on the support and wiping the knife after each key to preserve its purity, gives his painting a recognizable freshness and brilliance that sign his work.
