• Journal Entry France 2018..Watercolor..Texas Artist.Rae Andrews

    This is another journal entry from my recent workshop in France .
    The area is in Castlefranc, a quaint town very close to le Vieux Couvent.
    We painted by the river and had a lovely picnic this day, braving the wind a little, but it was still nice.
    I did this entry on site, and it's all watercolor with a final touch of gouache with watercolor on the tree trunks only.
    Don't forget that gouache can be used quite comfortably with watercolor, it is after all watercolor with a touch of white in it. I use it a fair bit while doing my journal entries.
    I hope you are liking these posts and are...

    We went to a great village on this day called Saint Cirq-Lapopie..
    The town itself is very hilly, perched on the side of a cliff above the Lot River.
    For any artist, there is a multitude of reference to paint.
    I chose something very simple here, a doorway and vines. I think this door led into a nice restaurant.
    So this was my journal entry for this day, all watercolor this time. I love doing these visual journal entries, more personal than just writing don't you think?

    Well I am finally posting a few images from my journals. I know it's been ages, sorry for my lapse in posts.
    I taught a workshop this year in Southwest France in the Dordogne region, and then 6 weeks later, I taught another workshop in the French Alps.
    Both were superb workshops, wonderful students and great fun!
    here are some images I did during each workshop and some later in my studio at home. I hope you enjoy them as much as I love painting them.
    This one is from the trip in May in the Dordogne area of southwest France. This was a day excursion for photo ops and painting.We stayed at...
