In the footsteps of the Impressionists...

Lucky me! I have spent the last three weeks in Normandy beside a river lined with poplar trees. In this area, the Impressionist painters found inspiration in the transient effects of nature. Monet strove to catch the ephemeral qualities of light on water, the morning mist, the glittering sea.
I too took my sketchpad. What did I draw? Bull terriers leaping through circus hoops of course.

More to follow.......
