Watercolour Pot, Mug and Apple


Watercolour sketch - David Garland pottery

These beautiful pieces of David Garland pottery are now a vivid part of my memories of Ruth and Julian's house in Provence. This was a quick sketch to treasure since I couldn't carry away the real thing.

Those of you who know Julian Merrow-Smith's wonderful still life pictures Postcard from Provence will know how he celebrates these objects in his paintings.

Wonderful painting! I like the apple perched on the cup, it gives it a personal touch and shows that those objects are an important part of somebody's life. Very nice!

Thanks for all the Provence news and the still life and plein air sketches. This latest pottery one is a stunner. BTW - meant to say for ages that I love the redesigned fresh blog page.
