Another daily painting for your collection. Perhaps you cannot go to France this year but you can go there through the imagination instead. This painting might help you. I have been fortunate enough to be able to go back to France every couple years. This is a typical farmers market in Niort. It happens everyday! You can go there and buy all the local products directly from the farmers. Here you can see some vegetables and fruits and also some jars of preserves. I kept my colors to a minimum playing with a lot of grays, and splashing a few warmer colors in between. You can also notice that the shadows indicate a winter morning. Everybody sports warm coats. It is very cold but it is also a magnificent sunny day.
