The painting

Party time, South West France style, the plan is to keep this ‘impossible’ picture loose, colourful, warm, noisy with a minimum of detail as was the event.

A developing new painting inspired by one of the most spontaneous craziest afternoons I’ve enjoyed, a design for a new painting worked up from sketches, memory and a collection of photographs. IMG_5481

The Fete du Vin at Sauveterre-de-Guyenne.

This usually quiet town Sauveterre-de-Guyenne is the principal settlement of the Entre Deux Mers region of Bordeaux.

The afternoon started innocently enough with sampling, speeches and awards. IMG_5487

As people settled to their meals and wine began to flow the pace quickened, it was not long before people started to dance while many of the band climbed onto tables …

The excellent very bombastic, very Mediterranean band who in 3 hours never once repeated themselves were Los Musaicos, Banda du Canton de Targon from Bayonne, IMG_5482
