Fountain in the hilltop village of Gourdon on the French Riviera

fontaine Gourdon

I have had such a wonderful time this morning in the lovely village of Gourdon, perched on a hilltop overlooking the Mediterranean coast.

I found a little corner in the shade where I could happily paint this beautiful fountain with crystal clear water. The soothing sound of the water coming out of the mouth of the statues was delightful and very refreshing. Early morning is a great time to paint because shadows are very interesting and there are not too many tourists. The tall building at the back is a “lavoir” where villagers used to do their washing.
