Description

Companion piece to Provencal village with hilltop village

This painting dates from 1987, when Nicholas was on the verge of becoming a full time artist:

I was still working part-time in an art gallery in London and painting as much as possible when I could.  I started painting full-time and earning a living from painting about a year later.

My wife and I used to go to the South of France quite often with our two young children (my son was born in 1987). I would get up very early most days and set off with my paints, and try to get as much done as possible before it became too hot.
