Art in Provence Southern France

This first picture was done on a sepia background, i'm not sure whether it reflects the feeling of Southern France in the middle of summer . The media is pen and wash. It is a media I really like but feel there is still a lot of work to do to achieve better results. The first picture is of a church in the hill top village of Siagnon .
The second picture I selected is of another church this time on a white background, and is the village church in Monieux .
The third scene is of part of the village of Casenueve looking towards St.Saturnin les Apt. All these villages have their own character and I really enjoyed sitting and drawing them.
