Jacqueline Newbold. What a wonderful trip! I have to say- traveling and painting go together so well. The painting makes us SLOW DOWN and observe. We went to several very small villages to paint and it was amazing to sit down, observe and paint. The above is Roussillon, France. It is where th ochre is mined. Such colors! The mountains are all the colors from bright yellow to rusty red- brown. Spectacular! This is looking from the mining area- a trail to the ochre mined area. I was experimenting with the foreground of the trees.
