Arch in Provence

I have been taking part in a watercolor workshop online at WetCanvas taught by Virgil Carter. We are working on (among other things) adding more luminous colors to our buildings. How do you think I did? This is from a small 5 x 7 painting that I had done in Provence when we were in France. I changed the view through the arch, but the rest of it is pretty much the same.


  1. You did very, very well Joan! I am sure your on line professor will agree!
    I love the luminous colors the most!
    Il est magnifique!

  2. Beautifully luminous, Joan. I thought I recognized this painting. I love the darkening color toward the corners of the building too!

  3. I love the glow of this Joan. Great job.

  4. I think your luminosity is astounding! :) Great job. Great painting.

  5. Michael - Thanks. It is strange for me to use such vibrant colors.

    Sherry - Thanks so much!

    Ai - Glad you like it. Thanks.

    Carol - Thanks. I will have to work those colors into my regular painting.
