Both of these scenes are from the restored medieval town of Lussan in southern France.
Above: I was fascinated with the door grillwork. These magnificent doorways were very old and imposing.
Below: La Petite Auberge de Lussan is a small inn and restaurant, or B & B. The tall obelisk in the front is a type that’s on many street corners commemorating a saint or prominent townsperson. I came upon this inn while wandering around the area. Some of those wanderings gave me the best subject matter.
February’s Zoom watercolor classes continue our “staycation” theme, where we’re going abroad for our painting subjects on Friday afternoons (2 p.m.–4 p.m. CST) and Saturday mornings (10 a.m.–12 noon CST). See the Classes and Events page for details, and send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you’d like to join us!
