Fountain at Gordes

 Watercolour.

76 x 58cm

A beautiful place, a little hill town, perched on a rock in the Vaucluse department of Provence. A warren of stone houses, little alleyways and hidden cafes to discover.  I found a bar where you could sit on a tiny balcony high up above the lower houses, looking out over the Provençal landscape, while swifts flew through the hot dry air. I spent a happy few hours there, a cold beer on the table and a sketchbook to hand... I would love to be there, right now, until then I shall have to make do with looking at my sketchbooks and making things like this painting.

Good view and very nice edit of the scene - oh to be back at that bar!
