Where I sketch in the South of France

Notre Jardin secret a Trausse

Notre Jardin secret a Trausse

I’m sketching in Trausse in May 2014, to catch up with the changes and restorations Marilyn and Steve have made since my last visit. Don’t you just love this little garden above.

Although I’ll be doing my own sketching for them on this trip, I’m planning your next fully escorted Travel Sketching Holiday in Provence for 2015 as we speak. Then I can spend all my time guiding you through the art of Travel Sketching.

I also have plans for Tuscany, and Greek Isles too.

However, here is something for you to consider. You can organise your own visit to Trausse any time of year, though May to October are the warmer months. You may be interested in art, painting, history, wine and regional food, and you’ll discover everything you are passionate about, being based in this tiny village.
There is gorgeous accommodation available in the village, as many of you already know. In fact that’s the next thing to do as it’s a small village and books up quickly.
You’ll see the 3 houses, so one or all will suit you beautifully.
This website also has great info on the village and surrounds, things to do and ‘useful links’ on flights and car rentals.
The sketch below is my view from the Summer Kitchen where I stay.
Can’t wait.
