Brittany, the Odet River

Riviere Odet

I was invited to a wedding last weekend in Brittany and the reception was taking place near the Odet River with its wonderful views. The weather was perfect and this gate between stone walls caught my eye as it created a beautiful contrast in shape and texture.

From a touristic point of view, the river runs past, or through, the towns of Bénodet, Combrit, Plomelin, Quimper, Ergué-Gabéric, Briec-de-l’Odet, Langolen, Coray,Trégourez, Leuhan and Saint-Goazec.

Picnic with a view

Saignon view2

Last night before sunset, we decided to have a picnic at the top of a hill near Gourdon village . The 3 little white triangles on the left next to the sea are the buildings shaped as boat sails, in Villeneuve-Loubet. As it was a particularly clear evening, we could see the coast of Corsica ! This sketch was done with a wash first and then I added some lines.
