Back to St. Rémy

While we were still in Provence staying at Le Mas D’Hermès we spent one day returning to St. Rémy. While I was drawing with the sketching group the previous week, Ellen had a chance to see some of the town on her own and wanted me to have a chance to see it as well so we went to the weekly market. I also had a chance to take a second look at the monastery of St. Paul de Mausole where Van Gogh had been. The market in St. Rémy was filled with all kinds of local produce, cheeses, sausages, and crafts as well. Here is a sampling from that busy and crowded event.

When the sketchers were at the monastery of St. Paul de Mausole we concentrated on only a couple of locales and I didn’t get to see Van Gogh’s room or some of the other areas on the grounds. On this second visit, we had time to explore the area more fully.

  1. Jeff, I’ve really enjoyed reading your blog about your trip to Provence. I love your sketches. It was fun to compare the photos with the sketches when they were included. The colors in your sketches were warm and inviting. They make me want to travel to Provence.


    1. Thanks Donna. It was a really magical experience both for the art workshop and the opportunity to be in Provence. There are so many wonderful memories of the trip that I will carry with me for a long time.
