Colorful Street


This was not only a colorful street, but a colorful town in general! It is in France, right next to some hills made of very beautiful dirt, and I guess they use that to make pigment, and use that to make paint to color the houses. Pretty cool. Can I remember the name of the town? Nope. Why am I so bad at that? (retorical)

Très belle harmonie de couleurs où swingue la lumière.

InEngland that color used to be made with ox blood mixed into the plaster! Not any more. Love the painting.
I have an image I'd like to send you.....a useful addition to a dailypainters studio. Can I do that?

The name of the town is Roussillon. It is indeed a beautiful town.

Thank you Jacqueline! You are exactly right - I looked it up. : )

Thanks, Martine! It sounds beautiful in French, though I did have to google translate it to understand. : )

Thanks, Tan. That is very interesting. Please feel free to email me the image - I'm very curious. : )
