Homage to the Fauves

Well, my sundress is back in the wardrobe and my tan is fading, but we still have lovely memories from our holiday just South of Perpignan. One special day was a visit to Collioure where the Fauvists (Matisse, Derain etc) were so inspired by the intense light that they began to paint in their wonderful, strong colours. There were posters displayed around the town of the paintings they had painted at the spot where they had painted them. It was fascinating to be able to stand in front of the same scene and see how they had interpreted it.

Here is a painting I did in their honour!!
