I am starting to create some paintings from my travels to the South West corner of France known as the Quercy Region. I am experimenting to get the texture on the old stone wall buildings found in almost all of the quaint, medieval villages in this region. This is a scene from the town of Sarlat. They are known for their truffles and foie gras. This is just one of many shops along the way that sell the truffles. I love the old stone buildings. You have to be there to appreciate how the town looks and feels to a new visitor.
I hope to create at least 3 more in this same size format as I have the perfect subject matter for this series. I have to do some artwork from this trip. It was too special and unforgettable to not put into watercolor.
