The Drawing Trip to Coursegoules was a success!

In the morning of 10 July, Patrick, Kate, Brenda, René, Ina, Anna and of course Pim and Marina departed 9am sharp from Le Hangar, for a drawing day in the lovely village of Coursegoule, in the Pré-Alpes, behind Vence. It was around an hour drive, and more than worth it! So picturesque, beautiful colours, gorgeous trees, views and very nice villagers, who were al interested and a good audience...
And a wonderful restaurant Le P'tit Creux, where we had our morning coffee (thank you Patrick!!) and later our lunch, a Breton experience, new for most of us, with Galettes Sarrasin, filled with amazing goat cheese, raw ham, fresh veggies and more.Combined with healthy smoothies for some and rosé or red for others, it was a perfect lunch.

Here are some pictures of the group and then of the drawings that were created!:

The Restaurant was a lovely starting point... (The 4th picture shows Pim with his p'tit crêpe chocolat  during lunch 😀) We had a coffee and then moved to the village square ...


We sat down and, to warm up the muscles, drew several typical elements of the village, doors, the tower, and the beautiful trees



After an excellent lunch, all went back to drawing other parts of Coursegoule, the church for instance turned out to be inspiring. As you can see below:

We had a wonderful and interesting day, and as you may derive from the pictures, all participants were happy and felt that it had done them good. Pim and I are probably organising one more short trip to a lovely location nearby!
After the summer there is the 4-day autumn-trip to Castiglione del Lago in Italy,
