Le Cannet : Le mur des amoureux de Raymond Peynet

20190912_144457.jpg

I have started a series of watercolour paintings this Summer about the small village of Le Cannet North of Cannes. I go there on a  regular basis and enjoy very much working with a theme.

This painting is inspired by a very famous fresco done on the façade of an old house in 1990 by the illustrator Raymond Peynet and the painter Guy Ceppa .

“Le mur des amoureux” (the wall of lovers”) has become an inevitable stop for newly-weds, a symbol of joy representing a united couple flying over the Garden of Eden.
