Donna Vis's Summer Vacation - Part I
Lavender Fields in Provence. Sault, France.
Do you remember back-to-school in elementary grades when your teacher asked "What did you do over the Summer?" We usually spent the first day doing a project that covered this subject.
So today I'm going to share with you my design inspirations over the summer. Some ended up in finished art, some as beautiful photos for future work.
Here is the beginning of a few posts to come.
I have ALWAYS wanted to paint the rows of lavender in Provence. A month ago, that's what I did!
And, I took a million photographs to reference for future studio work.
Here is my set-up! I just couldn't grow an arm long enough to photograph myself working alone!
For the trip I bought a new Heilman box, their smaller easel and a very good, lightweight tripod that is wonderfully easy to use.
I borrowed the umbrella. Usually I have the umbrella separate from my box because I don't want everything to fly away with a gust of wind.
The weather cooperated. What a day!
