Painting in Crestet

So this is a painting "sketch" I did in the medieval village of Crestet, France. I was working quickly - there are things I would have done differently (!), but that's the nature of it. After I finished this piece I did two other sketches and painted them this week. All were painted on TerraSkin, a paper made from stone that I found out about from my friend Victoria. It was great to travel with since space was at a premium. It's definitley a product to check out.

I like the painting a lot! The Terraskin is a neat product. I bought some but haven't tried it yet. Can't wait.

Your photos are so cool. I really miss France. Hope to get back this summer!

Il est vrai que nous avons un nombre considérable de petits villages médiévaux en France...
On s'y sent toujours très bien...
Une très jolie peinture...
Gros bisous.

What a great painting Kim! I love the purples and the yellow building! I also love the composition. My eye is drawn down the street and then beyond the church. And I am so glad that you liked the TerraSkin. It really is such a great product. :)
