Provence workshop day six: the town squarePosted: July 1, 2018
On our final day of this workshop we stayed in our home base of Fontaine-de-Vaucluse. I’d love to go into more detail about the village but that will come at a later date when I have a keyboard to type on.
The town square was a complex subject with lots of activity, but after six days of sketching, I think people were up for the challenge.
It’s a busy place in the morning but the square is shaded all day by huge plane trees. There’s no sense of urgency if the location is comfortable and out of the hot sun, so people took their time drawing the scene.
Our final gathering in the evening started with a little vernissage of the work produced during the week. There’s something to be said for having a whole week to sketch.
Thanks again to our amazing guide Natalia from French Escapade and to all my students for working so hard! Now I have a few days off and then I’ll do this all over again next week.
