Fountain Walk

Monday. I suggested Sunday night that everyone do a watercolor wash over a page of their sketchbook in preparation of our “fountain walk” today. Within the walls of the old city of Vence there are lots of fountains, many of them named. Drawings with ink on top of our colored pages came out beautifully. Linda’s, without the color, was amazing. I gave them about 20 minutes at each place, taking a coffee/sketching break along the way.

The last fountain we visited was called the “Dufy Fountain.” Raoul Dufy painted here and did one of the fountain which is pictured here.

That night we had “pizza take-away.” Even the box was a work of art.
