French Village Sketchbook – August 2024

Quarante Quarante, France

Join me to sketch life in France as it happens in and around this charming wine-making village where I live.   This is the time of the grape harvest - the days are warm and the vineyards are buzzing with activity as local winemakers seize the moment to pick the grapes.   Soak up the atmosphere and fill your sketchbook with images of local views, people, food, old cobbled streets, buildings and markets.  I'll share ink and watercolour techniques for both beginners and more experienced travel sketchers - loads of fun with line and colour!
