Paintings from Provence

My week in Provence ended far too soon and it went by far too quick. I managed to do a few, not nearly as much as I planned, because typically Ronell, I forgot half of my art stuff at home. I left my very important oil canvases, boards and large watercolor pads by the door to pack them last and that’s where they still were while I as in Provence. Finding an art store proved to be harder than imagined  and so I ended up borrowing two canvas papers from Katherine…can one borrow a paper/canvas…?

To start off with: all of the following are sketches done around Les Couguieux, where we stayed.

…the blue shutters of les couguieux…

…hameau des couguieux

…the terrace at les couguieux…

To follow: landscapes in watercolor and gouache

    It was wonderful that you could be in Provence, even for a short time, Ronelle. Just as Ingrid says, every one is a beauty. I did not know about your new gallery.
