Samoens, France-Canadian Rockies
The challenge as you come to the end of a painting is to not rush the process. I put more detail into the village and the clock tower. Adding Paynes grey to the road gives some contrast to the surrounding landscape. I also paint the bricks into the clock tower.......I still remember looking up many times from my bike rides impressed how the tower, though large in size, was dwarfed by the mountains behind.
There are many special places on this earth. I have my top five favourites of those I have been to. France is in the top 5 for sure.
