Day 580-One Last Chateau Gaillard

   

I sat on the corner in Les Andelys watching my cruising companions hiking up the hill from which “many don’t return” according to my new friend Gus’ husband Bob. Gus and Bob have done the Paris to Normandy cruise several times annually. 

This painting was done wet on wet and is one of my favorite paintings to date. I felt like I was finally getting Charles Reid!! 

Since hill hikes make my asthma go crazy I elected to draw while they hiked.  Les Andelys is just a charming tiny village. A cute row of shops. A church dating to 1200! Half timber buildings. 
  
What’s not to love?! And Richard the Lionhearted walked these streets. Fascinating to me with our young American history. 

Once again same colors. 

Thanks for reading.
