I live in an area of France that is well known for its 'perched' villages. They are built on top of the hills, generally to protect the population from the Moorish invaders in the middle ages. These villages have lots of small streets, alcoves, alleyways and arches. It is easy to loose your sense of direction with all the twists and turns. I always take loads of photos but to date I have not painted any of them. So, starting with a small box canvas, I decided it was about time LOL. I like the texture achieved on the closest wall.
