Gourdon – Right up there!

Gourdon and the coast from the meadow. A sketch book painting of 2017

Hi above the coast between Nice and Antibes lies the beautiful perched village of Gourdon.

It’s site is remarkable and visiting there is a great thing to do when in the area. The winding, but not too scary, road from Chateauneuf gives wonderful panoramas of the village and from the edge of the town the views to the coast as far as the bay of Cannes are spectacular.

Good cafes and restaurants are there too and many interesting shops, perfumeries and galleries to wander around.

We often go there and last time picnicked just outside the town on the nearby meadow.

Here are just a few paintings, both painted in  winter and summer, and the first one just recently from the meadow. Some are  recent but others are from the past decade or so.
