Workshops in Languedoc
Like most of Europe, we’ve had double heat waves here in Languedoc. One can find a tiny zephyr of a breeze under a tree at times. Sketchers do cope wherever we are if a sketch is needed. Here you’ll see a vineyard landscape in direct watercolour. A warmup of same in two colours to establish values. A private lesson with a student at Bar Fontaine. A sketch of Chateau Remaury in b/w and colour. This all helps you get to know the absolutely marvellous subjects here. Come and join us sketch your own story here.
