Monflanquin Aquitaine France - plein air.

A wonderful atmosphere Michael, wish I was there!

Great holiday feel, simply done and effective

A lovely plain air watercolour Michael. Very atmospheric. I like the brick work and the person moving into the scene from the right.

Thanks Carole , Pat & Dympna. Too hot to paint there in a July heatwave.! But it is a lovely old village.

You have caught the sun and heat with this one Michael.

Gorgeous painting, Michael. You have a lovely gallery.

Thank you very much Stephen &amp; Jennifer.<br />BTW, Jennifer, I have just come across your Teasle - brilliant!

Really great watercolour work you do Michael and all of the highest quality. Your gallery is excellent and commendable

Dennis - that is very kind of you. I really don&#39;t think I deserve such praise. However, probably like most other artists, I am super-critical of my own work. It is a constant striving to try and improve. I have just read Geoff Hunt&#39;s watercolour pages in the latest Artist magazine and marvelled at his skill yet again. His interior of Southwark Cathedral is a terrific painting. It inspired me to have a go at painting the interior of Winchester Cathedral - not sure I will post it! It only confirmed how far I still have to go and what a very clever man is Mr. Hunt!

Hang on Studio Wall

A plein air watercolour from my recent holiday. The weather was scorching and I only just managed to sketch and paint this before I "fried". However, I hope it captures the feel of this lovely old medieval village and the brilliant light of a hot summer's day.
