Weather continued to be unsettled towards the end of my first week at Les Bassacs so we painted around the house and 'hamlet', which is a collection of very old buildings, homes, farm buildings, and pathways and narrow roads meandering out to the surrounding cherry orchards, vineyards, lavender fields and olive groves. In other words, lots of potential subject matter.
I took lots of photos and back in the studio worked on several paintings, and finished up with these:
once again examples of looking at the scene, then starting with a basic drawing and then allowing ideas to develop and playing with colour. Good creative fun.
