Many years ago I went to France with my aunt. We sketched our way across the south of France and then up to Anger where my aunt was attending a conference. It was a great trip. I have many photographic slides and sketches from that trip. I have converted many of the slides to digital format which makes it easier to find images to paint.
This watercolour was painted from one of those photos.
Most of my sketches are labelled as to where we were at the time. The slides are not. Using the sketches as a guide, I think this picture is from somewhere near Retournac.
Here is my watercolour attempt at rooftops and buildings.
I used a photo taken by my mother on a trip to Portugal.
