15 Days in Provence #7

"Rue de Lavoir - Tourtour"
6"x8" oil on canvas panel

"Rue de Lavoir - Tourtour" in process

Tourtour has many twisty and hilly streets with tall buildings in terra cotta, stone or pastel shades. The shutters add more bright splashes of color. I stood in a corner of the "place", where outside cafes and restaurants serve drinks and meals, to paint this one. I had my picture taken several times and got quite a few comments (in French) from passers by. A far cry from Great Brook Farm where I usually paint!
