The painting

Literal leap into the unknown, 24.09.2003,  I particularly wanted to paint a morning mist; I almost missed it.

I painted this scene of Saint Brice on location as it happened,

On this particular morning I found myself locked in my chambre d’ote (guest house).

Unfortunately I’d had left my house key in my car… which  as you may have already guessed, was not in the house.

Fortunately my room had a floral balcony; I jumped from the first floor window balcony.

On location before dawn to prepare and paint,  I returned in time for a well earned breakfast.


Saint Brice Village

This charming village is said to be at the exact centre of this region, Entree de Mere, were better to base your tour?

Entree de Mere, a region of gently rolling hills and dales as its name implies, between the two great salty tidal rivers Dordogne and Garonne , salt water therefore sea to medieval folk, were better to base your tour?

I discovered my host had a keen interest in the voyage of Laperouse (see Laperouse arriving at Botany Bay) so naturally we two enjoyed fine conversation.
