On our day trips out around Provence we normally take a picnic for lunch. Sometimes we can drive for ages to find that 'ideal' spot, sunny but shady, quiet, close to the road but not busy etc. I'm sure you've all done the same. Sometimes, like the spot in the painting we hit it without too much trouble. The sunlight and shadows appealed to me, and this is the painting with a little bit of editing to remove a few trees.
