Dordogne River - Beynac, France
I've started taking a studio landscape class at the ASLD with Doug Dawson. I certainly have plenty of reference photos from my trip to France and previous travels. I painted this in mid December before the Christmas crunch hit. Now that I've packed away all the decorations I'm back to painting … When in Beynac I spent my time painting the castle but took plenty of photos of the Dordogne river behind me. Beynac was quite a historic tourist spot but it was still easy to get a reference photo with just one slow canoe paddling by.
