Canel and the Dordogne

In June, 2017, I spent three weeks in Southern France, painting, touring, and soaking up the ambiance of the French countryside. During my first week, I took a workshop with Vermont watercolorist, Robert O’Brien. We spent an idyllic week at Canel, a restored bastide house in the Lot valley near Tournon, painting en plein air every day. I loved the patterns of the fields, the ancient stone buildings, and the rugged landscape. Following the workshop, I took two more weeks to explore the Dordogne region, as well as the Tarn valley, painting and photographing as I went.
