Images from yesterday
There was some interesting things to see during the train ride north yesterday. Little chateaux tucked in to hills, giant modern wind turbines, lots of grape crops, very rural very pretty. I didn't get many pictures, we were zipping by too quickly.
The building in the street shots are what I see out my window. Cool, huh!
Some of you are anxious to see paintings made on the trip, unfortunately most of what I did was sketch. I found it was much easier to carry a sketch book and pencil that watercolors, brushes, water... you get the idea. The little lady in the bottom sketch is from a statue at the Musee Augustins. There was a group of them and they reminded me of some of James Christensens earlier works. The funny thing is the little lady has the exact same face as the male statue next to her. Very interesting! I wonder if they both look like the artist?
