Virtual Paintout - Cote d"azur

This months Paintout location is the Cote d'Azur which has far too many beautiful street views to choose from. I picked this one which is not exactly a street, but it is a view of a lovely little corner at the entry to a church. It feels deeply Provencal to me, what with the beautiful ceramic pots and the wonderful ochre and sienna colors and the quiet sense of timelessness. The painting is 8" x 9" on stretched linen and if you would like to purchase it, click here.

Wonderful little painting. I've looked and looked at that virtual paintout site hoping to find something to paint....all the street scenes are just that: streets, blah in the world did you find such a lovely little corner to paint! Good job!!

Hi Jill - I find that it helps to go as far out to the perimeter of the map as possible - often the villages yield more interesting subject matter.

Sarah, I have stopped on this painting several times and always find it to be a calm place to rest. It is very well done.
