After I got back, I did this little painting from a photo I took in Bellegarde-du-Razès, using my "old" colour palette, so it was a little bit of an experimentation, playing with colours I haven't used in a while.
The result isn't quite as sparkling as I wanted. And definitely not as interesting. Was there a good reason these colours were cast aside?
I'm sure I can do better than that - it's a bit too literal an interpretation of the landscape - I think I should try something more abstract and textural! I've just picked up Ann Blockley's book on watercolour textures, and I'm seeing things that are really inspiring me! Always good to go back to my old classics.
