Provence workshop day five: in the footsteps of Van GoghPosted: June 30, 2018
We spent the day at the monastery of St. Paul de Mausole in St. Remy. There was something about this special place that made for a very tranquil day, despite all the tourists passing through. Perhaps it was because we were looking out at the very same view that Van Gogh could see from his room at the sanatorium, or else because the heat and windless day left us in a state of lethargy. I’m not sure which it was.
My demo was of the recently planted lavender garden, which called for a bit of artistic license.
On day five the student’s sketches are quite amazing!
We’re spoiled with lunches, and this one included local strawberries and pastries…
To get out of the heat, we spent the afternoon in the cloister…
It’s one of those places where the views and the light are magical.
