The majority of Richet's landscapes are of the forest of Fountainebleau, although he did also paint views at Moret sur Loing, Loiret, Burgundy, Normandy, and along the Seine. His compositions are often airy and open, unlike the sometimes enclosed or shadowy views of nature of some of his mentors and counterparts
