The Vaucluse, Provence

Just back from a few days in Liguria, followed by more wonderful days in the Vaucluse to stay with good friends. I had decided that I would only take watercolours (they are so brilliantly portable) and it was amazing to sit at the edge of a lavender field with its gentle perfume wafting over me while I painted. It’s the first time I’ve seen this Provencal splendour and it has made a wonderful change to the green fields and ginger cows of the Aveyron.Lavander field¬©lizgyooll
