En Route to Avignon

Sarah's Painting Blog

Get on a train just after 7 am at St Pancras and 5 ½ hours later I’m met at Avignon by David Atkinson. The beginning of a week’s painting in Provence at Les Bassacs. We are 12 students in total with Mark Cazalet, whom I’d known from England, as the teacher. Les Bassacs is a collection of houses which is run as Arts in Provence by David and Liz Atkinson. Extremely hot – so swim before a delicious dinner – but thunder and lightening curtail my swim.
