Softer colours of rural France

We leave after an amazing week here in rural France. We were from Scotland, Australia, New Zealand and USA.

I have taken so much learning from last week in Barga and it is beginning to show in my new works. With each one, I do one or two soft layers of thin watercolour, and leave it to dry in the sun while I do my charcoal pencil ‘plan’ on my sketch pad. The somehow when I begin to paint, something is already dictating the way the painting will go. I just follow on behind and love whats happening.

Off to Paris – again- (oh no!!!) to meet my lovely husband who has finally organised things to have this rendevous with moi.

Will see what I paint there after all the wonderful freeing up I have experienced.

  • Hi ERin, I’m amazed by all the wonderful things you have painted and posted here! I can see that this trip has brought it’s creative fruits to you:) Wonderful! Take care, Andrea

  • This one is very nice. I tend to prefer your watercolour and pen drawings but I think that is because you are well established in that way of doing things, and I can see you are moving out into a new direction here. Pushing new boundaries and making new discoveries is what it’s about. Have a nice weekend in Paris.
