Sorry for the delay in posting but we have very bad internet connection at the hotel, not long enough to post so hopefully today I will have enough time.
In the last post, I mentioned that everyone was going to make their own paint with the ochre from Roussillon. It was a process but not too bad afterall. You need to melt gum drops in boiling demineralized water and add it to your pigment. Here Sonja is showing Jan and Dianne the process of preparing the paint.
Below is a picture of lavender fields painted by Linda P (as you can see she is not using the paint they she made because there was no lavender paint. I guess you may say she is cheating……).
Everyone spent the day painting in the studio or almost. Some people disappeared for a nap or to go in the pool for a little while before coming back to the studio.
That was a good day relaxing before going out the next day.
