This morning’s view of the Chateau de Barroux, beautiful with the summer coming up behind and over to backlight the buildings and trees. But what has been drilled into us – and to any landscape painter – is not to think of them as buildings and trees but as shapes, masses, and values. So easy but so hard. Anyway i am happy with this one. Normally I am sortakinda happy just if I dont hate it. So if I like it even a little I am regular old happy. Nice to end on a high note. Back to sketching and watercolor for rest of trip… Has been a great workshop with @ianrobertsartist and a great group of fellow painters. .
