Tourrettes-sur-Loup and a Concert

Tuesday, a busy, busy day. Sippers took off on the bus for a day sketching in Tourrettes-sur-Loup, a few miles away. We stopped first at the cafe for that amazing violet ice cream, watched the men playing boules, then took a walk around the grand rue, finding all sorts of interesting things.bus 2.JPG

After all that walking, we were ready for lunch, and there just happened to be a creperie right there with what else? Violet crepes! All of us enjoyed sketching there.








That night we went to a lovely concert at the cathedral at which a chamber orchestra from Germany performed the music of  Vivaldi, Mozart, and Paganini among others.

  1. Your posts paint the journey you all had! So sorry I missed the trip! Will your next book have the violet sorbet/ice cream recipe? Hope so.

  2. Mary Ann~ As others of your grateful blog-readers have shared so beautifully and bountifully: these posts are truly a feast for the eye and the heart! ~Your fellow artists continue to share such lovely watercolors and. . .ah!. . .your own watercolor gathering–(of five, small, luminous vignettes of the village of Tourrettes-sur-Loup)–is enchanting! For reasons you know so well, two of those five touch especially deeply: the vignette of the olive trees below the village. . .as well as that of the view one sees when looking up the olive grove path toward the outer ramparts of this much-beloved medieval village. So delighted you all were there, bringing back your own artistic treasures…and sharing them so generously and joyously with all of us!
