Provence beyond the color of lavender

From red poppies to the green waters

For us painters, always hunting for colors, Provence is not only the indigo - purple of lavender but a rich palette of hues and tints. Two years ago, a huge field of red poppies suddenly revealed itself as we were driving on the road to Gordes. We dropped off the van and sat up our easels. What a wonderful session!

Orange is also a major character: the yellow - red ochre rocks in Roussillon, are a rare sight indeed. The emerald waters of the source of River Sorgue, are the unmistakable mark of Fontaine de Vaucluse.

Next dates in Provence (15 - 22 May)

In May, Provence is a hive of poppies and sunflowers. With a little luck - depending on the season - this year well be dipped in red and yellow, and in the thousands of hearth 'nuances'.

Colors are not the only qualities that make Provence a special place. The sense of savoir vivre, the good living that keeps track of time, is a perfect blend of ingredients: space, light, food and wine. The eye of a painter will make painting in Provence an unforgettable experience!
