Shari Blaukopf’s sketching workshop was over but before leaving the Hotel du Poète in Fontaine-de-Vaucluse, I did a quick 20 minute sketch in the hotel’s beautiful grounds complete with deck chairs and exotic plants.
We later met up with relatives from Germany who would join us for several more days in Provence. After spending the afternoon in Fontaine-de-Vaucluse, we drove down to Le Mas D’Hermès, a wonderful farm B & B in the town of Plan d’Orgon, south of Avignon. The stone farm house was built in the 1890’s and has been beautifully converted to a three-room B & B. More on this great B & B later…

The next day we travelled to the picturesque village of Venasque with it’s charming narrow passageways and ancient church dating back to the 11th century. It was a very hot day and the town is less well known so we had it practically to ourselves.

After a light lunch at Le Petit Chose overlooking the valley, we meandered through the village and I found a good subject for drawing.
