The sketchbooks are packed for Provence!

Four Go Painting in Provence - illustration by Sarah Wimperis
I am totally over provisioned with sketchbooks for my trip to Provence with three art blog buddies which you can follow on Four Go Painting in Provence. 

However there is such a lot to see! I leave tomorrow at 7am to start the drive down to Provence - see Making A Mark is on holiday for the route

Below is a map of the places we can get to in the area where we are based in the Vaucluse.

The map shows the area which is within a drive of about an hour and half from the house where we are staying.  Which means we have the choice of Places to Paint around the Vaucluse and Luberon areas of Provence and a bit further afield
  • the landscapes of 
    • the hills and mountains - from Mont Ventoux, to Mont St. Victoire to the Alpilles
    • the vineyards of the Rhone Valley
  • townscapes of 
    • the markets full of produce from the plain which is used for market gardening
  • marine scenes on the Mediterranean coast between the Camargue and the cliffs 
You can keep up with the paintings produced by our painting house party in Provence in our dedicated painting party blog - Four Go Painting in Provence

I'll be posting my sketches on this blog as well - although they might have to be rescanned when I get home
