Provence workshop Day Two: Lavender and red rocksPosted: June 27, 2018
So happy to hear that yesterday’s post came through! I will continue the week with few words and many visuals.
The day started with a drive to a lavender field where we spent the morning under the shade of a huge tree, painting a view of the rows of flowers. We’re very lucky to be here during the short blooming season.
I started with a demo, simplifying the rows of lavender into loose shapes.
So thrilled with my students work. They also painted in simple shapes and loose washes.
We’re spoiled every day by our amazing French Escapade guide Natalia. Lunch was sandwiches and my favourite: Cavaillon melon.
In the afternoon we headed over to nearby Roussillon for a few free hours of shopping, ice cream eating and sketching. Of course I had to sketch the red town piled on top of the red rocks.
