I met with Helen yesterday about our upcoming May 9-19 trip to Provence, France. I am getting so excited about it that I can’t sleep past 4:30 in the morning. We will be visiting Roussillon know for it’s red-ochre colors and designated one of the most beautiful villages in France. Here is a photo that I took when I was there with my family in 2003. This photo is inspiring me to get to my studio today to paint! Daniel Smith Art Supplies has a color I haven’t tried yet – Burgundy Red Ochre. Described as a granulating, reddish-brown earth color, it sounds perfect for trying to capture the ruby glow of Roussillon. They also have free shipping, so now is a good time to stock up on supplies if you need anything.
