Stone Wall and Steps, Bonnieux, Provence

This centuries-old wall forms the entrance to a small shady park perched high on top of the beautiful town of Bonnieux.

Is it watercolour?
Stunnning! I like your style.

Un merveilleux travail de jeu de lumière et d'ombre... Vos couleurs sont aussi délicieuses... me croyez-vous si je vous dis que j'entends les cigales ?!...

Gros bisous.

Merci, Martine and Hani Hani. Yes, this is a watercolor. I decided to paint without a preliminary pencil drawing, just using the brush, and trying to keep the shadows dark enough yet luminous. Mostly a triad of quinacridone coral, quinacridone gold, and ceruleun blue--with some alizarin crimson and cobalt blue added at the end.
