Plein Air Painting in Southern France
This June, I had the pleasure of painting with 10 artists in the Languedoc region of France. Our stay at Montfaucon, was seamless, with its high quality of service, wonderful chef prepared meals and lovely accommodations.
One of the highlights of this year's trip was a half day excursion to Rennes le Chateau, where we listened to the well known British author, Henry Lincoln speak about the Knights Templar and the lost treasure of the Cathars.
Some of our favorite paintings locations were in the foothills of the Pyrenees in the tiny village of Bugarach, the charm of peaceful Lagrasse with its 12th century abbey, the rose-filled village of Camon and the stunningly beautiful Rothchild vineyards.
I'll be going back in 2012, September 20-30. More information may be found on the workshop page of my website. Come join us!
