11 September 2014. Lacoste, Provence. Painted this from the same spot as the evening painting, but now Lacoste was in full sun. I loved the excitement of the long shadows under the vines - one of the fabulous things about Provence in September. Two Americans on battery powered bikes stopped to chat. At their time of life they said they needed the extra help to get up the hills – must say I tend to agree with them!!
