Painting Provence

All of these paintings were painted during a two week visit to Provence, France, in June 2011. 
Every painting has been completed "en plein air" braving very hot sun, inquisitive ants and interested people.  They are painted using either oil, watercolour or gouache.  The sizes vary from small, 4 inches x 6 inches to larger , 14 inches x  20 inches. 
They are shown here in reverse order, in other words, this one, Gordes Fountain is the last one to be painted.
Some of them will be for sale from Beside The Wave Gallery from August 5th 2011.
