In Provence

everyone wants to be a painter, no matter how good or bad they are...who can blame them.

The surroundings breathe beauty.

Its hard not to fall in love with a region such as this,

that's why Paul Cézanne and Vincent Van Gogh

kept painting and painting.

It continues to inspire artists to this very day.

Many artist's have tried to emulate the

masters of impressionism as a visit to galleries in Provence will show.

However, for me  Vincent Van Gogh is the artist

who expresses himself through bold colour,

even when in a high emotional state.

He used symbolic and expressive values

of colour to convey his internal emotions

on canvas,

and yet the same colours are still

visual today for us all to recreate the

atmosphere and light of this

amazing region.

If you desire to paint in Provence can I give

you one piece of advice

" Paint from your heart "

and don't try to emulate someone else's
