Seaside sketchbook

The vielle ville of Villefranche-sur-Mer is exquisite, but I have battled with the colourful palette painting here demands. In the Lot, the houses are stone and for the most part, the shutters are either grey or brown. The landscape is green, green and more green.

Here the houses are every shade of yellow and red and some are even blue and turquoise, and the sea is emerald, blue, pink, grey, silver and even gold depending on the time of day.
