Was a great experience painting in a traditional french village. I painted oil for the first time in my life and managed something I am not ashamed of thanks to Linda :-)

Everyone felt this was a memorable experience and really enjoyed the day. Staying around & having lunch "plat du jour" at the bar is highly recommend.
