|St. Sat Stormy Sky|
|Passing Storm Above St. Sat|
I did these two paintings in the Les Bassacs studio, based on photos I took when we painted above the village of St. Saturnin les Apt, looking down on the valley, on day 4. By the middle of my first week in Provence (several weeks ago now) the weather turned from very hot to unsettled which meant some fabulous skies and somewhat cooler temperatures (much better for painting). I was really happy with these two, as I took my usual creative liberties.
My morning plein air painting, based on a deep valley view, started out well, but remains unfinished.
Still waiting for some inspiration
