Artists need INSPIRATION!!

Which is why it is important to travel, see new places, change your mind set, eat different food and feel different emotions!

SO! Cat & Caroline went on a road trip through France in June and July.

It was an 'Art & Champagne' Trip!! It started in Rouen, (architecture) then onto Giverny (Monet) onto Epernay (Champagne) onto Dijon (art and good wine and mustard!) then onto Aix en Provence (Cezanne) onto Sault (lavender fields).

ROUEN

Magnificent architecture and a discussion on 'Perspective'

This scene was inspiring for perspective and light.

Caroline also found this 'inspiring' for shape and colour. You can find 'inspiration' anywhere = just look!

We also enjoyed 'Cafe Culture'

 

GIVERNY

Monet's garden of course and those well known images of lily ponds. You can't feel 'Monet' here any more (too many tourists) but maybe some paintings will be created inspired by something here = probably this photo

which was in the garden of the wonderful studio apartment we stayed in.

In Dijon it was the gin and tonics with a cucumber spiral which inspired us!!

Plus the interesting hotel!

THEN SPAIN!!

Then it was a few days in our old 'haunt' = Marbella!

We used to have an art studio in the centre of Marbella, so we know the area well.

This time we chose to stay in an apartment on the beach.

It was complete paradise.

With family and Alex Croxford with wife Letitia flew in from China. Would not have left but for Magic Easel in the UK calling!!
