Back in my studio after the plein air painting trip to Provence. Created an oil painting of the Abbey garden outside Avignon based on the watercolor sketch   (see last post)  I'd done while there and my photo's.

Villenueve Garden

Villenueve Garden
12 x 9 Watercolor
by Pat Fiorello

Visited a lovely garden at an Abbey near Avignon in Provence. Did a quick watercolor sketch and plan to paint it again in oil.

I was in France to teach a workshop last week. Here are a few of my favorite photo's:

The charming inn where we stayed in the small village of Venasque

Beautiful landscape scenes. Love the poppies!

Our group visiting St. Remy, where Vincent Van Gogh lived and painted.

Here's some comments from my students at the workshop I taught in Provence last week.

My next European workshop is in Tuscany this September. There are still a few spots open. Could one be for you?
