Frayssinet, France Village Scene
Ten days painting in France has been a dream come true...a long-time desire I may be able to cross off my bucket list. Every oil painting completed in France was done in plein air (fresh air). Without my easel umbrella (which I sorely missed) I got a lovely tan. Additionally many people stopped along the roads where I painted to tell me how beautiful my paintings were. I felt so encouraged as most of you know I am a creature of comfort and love being near a refrigerator, computer, and away from the constantly moving sun. I gave myself two hours to complete a painting....didn't always work, so by the time three hours passed, I had a different light. Fortunately I knew early on to establish my light and shade so usually I was fine.
DreamaTollePerry and her husband Ron set up this "Paint France with Dreama" event, not a workshop, but still held many opportunities to learn. We visited many quaint towns and I have hundreds of awesome photographs, enough to last me quite a while.
