Château at Torsac, France by ian osborne

Château at Torsac, France by 

Watercolour on 325 gsm fine-grain paper 30×20 cm

W&N tubes

A new version of a painting that I have done a few times.

This one was commissioned along with three others by an association of tourist offices to grace the cover of one of four brochures which are being prepared for the coming season focussing on four towns in the Charente region of France.

I will be doing two – Torsac and La Rochefoucauld

My wife Fran will be doing the other two – Montbron and Villebois-Lavalette.

A great publicity opportunity for us.

I paint watercolours and write short stories.
