Chateau, Villebois Lavalette, France by 

This imposing chateau on a hill, not far from where we live, was completed in the 12th century and has really had to defend itself. It’s in the Charente region of France.

Its been occupied by the English, bombarded by canon. Taken by the protestants and then the catholics, damaged during the French Revolution. It’s been a garrison, a school, a prison and is now privately owned. Apparently the owner still lives in part of it. Acrylic on canvas 38 × 46 cms. Original Sold.

    If you hadn’t figured it out by now, I’m truly jealous of these wonderful places you have so close by to paint. And you do it so beautifully as well. Fantastic work Fran.

  • Thanks for such a lovely comment Jim. It certainly is a beautiful area of France.

    Superb watercolour. I like the gentle washes, and three stage composition.

  • Thank you Colin for a lovely comment. The medium is actually acrylic, but used more like watercolour.
