15 Days in Provence #3

Tourtour Nocturne
6"x8" oil on canvas panel

On Sunday night we decided to go for it with a nocturne. I can think of three kinds of nocturne: the moonlit scene, distant lights, and looking into a lighted area. This is the second kind, since there was no moon. I wanted the terrain, but had to do it from memory. There was plenty of light to paint by outside the Mairie in Tourtour, with a lively boules game going on nearby.
