My back is still playing up so I was not able to do as much art as I would have liked.
My husband and I went to Provence for a two week painting holiday. It was frustrating because I felt unable to concentrate properly on the subjects,but had a small sketch book with me. I did some pen and wash studies.
 This was the view out of our bedroom, rooftops with interesting tiles of many colours.

 A view of the church at Jucas,a sunny day casting dark shadows.

 Next a day at Sault, and time to enjoy the scene around the restaurant.

The Tour de France went by the end of our road,how lucky. First there were the sponsors,making a carnival atmosphere of the event, before the cyclists came wizzing through.

 A church tower at Roussillon, i'm afraid I didn't get the whole tower in, a dip day when concentration was lacking.

A scene of the market at St.Saturnin, we had coffee and watched as the stalls got busier as time went on.
It was a loverly holiday, just wished I had felt more up for it.
