Collioure, France I & III, French Landscape Painting


 

A sweeping view from the royal castle of Collioure shows a beautiful coast line of the Mediterranean Sea.  Near the lighthouse (now part of a church) there is a harbor and a beach.  Everything looks so peaceful as far as one can see from up here.  But to think this castle looks more like a fortress, I had to imagine there must have been some rough times in the past.

Collioure, situated only a few kilometers from the eastern French-Spanish border, is in Pyrénées-Orientales, the region sometimes referred to as Northern Catalonia.  People's pride in the Catalan culture can be felt in the names of restaurants and shops, at the sight of houses hanging a yellow-and-red Catalan flag, and hearing Catalan spoken on the streets.

Keiko, I found your work on the dailypainters website a few months back and your watercolors are refreshing to see. I'd like to invite you to have a look at a new monthly artist challenge that I've began on my blog. It is a good way for artist to come together to share, learn and support. You'll find the link in the upper right hand corner. I realize this month is almost over but you may like to join in sometime. Domo arigato, Alice
