Sunday Sketchbook: Provence


I leave Friday for two weeks teaching and painting in Provence, and am looking forward to posting a sketch next Sunday from the great market at L'Isle sur la Sorgue. Here are my ubiquitous feet relaxing a few years ago in my bedroom at Les Bassac, the hamlet that's home to the wonderful workshop site "Arts in Provence".

Thank you, Sara, glad you like this. It was a pleasure to paint--such beautiful colors in that room!

Love those blues and yellows - and the feet aren't bad, either :) Have a safe journey and a wonderful teaching experience!

Blues and yellows, along with the vertical and horizontal elements, are really woven subtly in here. I love your feet and the little Cezannish pitcher.

I love the way you handled the fabric in this painting. I'm looking forward to seeing your posts from Provence. Have a great trip!
