Breakfast sketch from the terrace

Breakfast sketch from the terrace
11 " 16", pen and ink and coloured pencils in Moleskine
I've been doing this sketch for the last three days while sat on the terrace outside the house in the early morning.

The tones and colours change very fast as the sun gets higher in the sky.

On the morning I started the various airlines had created some fabulous vapour trails for the sky. This is a painting which really needs to be portrait format to get the full drama of the sky.
This is also a sketch of mini mountains next to Mont Ventoux- check out the number of pyramids you can see.
This is also probably a view which will get painted in oils in due ciourse

Today I'm collecting Sarah Wimperis from Marseiiles airport - she's arriving at 5pm.

I am really enjoying this blog. What a wonderful idea to blog your art experiences in Provence! It's even made me go to Google maps to look for somewhere to paint so I can paint along with you :)

Love how the sky reflects the criss-cross of the fields!

I was lucky enough to have a wonderful visit to France last summer.

I am vicariously enjoying your trip this year.

Thank you all for taking us along with you.
