I came across these and it brought the holiday in the Dordogne back vividly. :) we stayed in a flat up the steps in an old farmyard, with a lovely courtyard and barns, pig sties and tobacco drying barns circling it, no longer in use. Just gorgeous :)

We'd gone with my parents and a driver reversed into my fathers brand new car - he looked more French than the French as he gesticulated! I had to practice my French filling in the insurance forms with the driver of the van, who was delightful.

Lovely sketches. The style matches the countryside very well - pretty and free. :)

Wonderful and lively sketches. I'm loving the first one in particular. Great colours and charming, dappled decay. :thumbsup:
