Wet Beach at Trouville

Wet Beach at Trouville
7"x9" oil on panel
$75

On my trip with the Wapping Group, we spent five days in Brittany, followed by three in Normandy, near Honfleur. We stayed in the small town of Villerville-sur-mer, where we found gorgeous villas, very paintable houses in the village, and a lovely beach with a walking path the whole length of town. There is a creperie and a fish restaurant in addition to the very posh one at our hotel, Le Bellevue. We tried them all!

We had a very wet day of painting in nearby Trouville. Sally, Jenny, and I stood beneath the overhang in front of a block of beach changing rooms, and painted the beach in the rain. Others got totally soaked, but cranked out some wonderful paintings. This area has a lot to see, but I’d been there several times before, so Sally and I stayed close to Villerville, and painted on the beach, chased a few cows, and tried to stay dry.

Some of Sally's paintings from the trip are here on Facebook.

And here are a couple of Rob Adam's beautiful pen and ink drawings from the trip, also on Facebook.
