A welcoming door - watercolour

At the beginning of August, we spent ten days or so in the South of France, near Montpellier. It was great, even if I did not get to paint a lot. I managed two watercolours and this is one of them.

In the morning, the front door of the house was gently lit by the sun. By 10:00 am, it was too hot to stay in the sun and the intense light was just flatening all colours.

You can feel the warmth in this painting. I've recently found your blog and am enjoying the paintings and finding a lot of interesting discussion. Thanks, Paul.
