As beautiful as the views are from Le Vieux Couvent, I am glad you are willing to head out to the market with me today.
Market day is Saturday in Cahors and it’s overflowing with everything imaginable!!
From veggies that look pretty enough to paint!
to cherries so ripe you can smell them:))
And just a few olives to pick from 🙂
I found some pots just “hangin’ around”…
And flowers for sale everywhere!
Here’s your spot for the day. I saw you spying out all those gorgeous reds and figured it was the perfect fit for you:-)
Looks like it’s time for some permanent rose and cad red watercolor in your journal;))
(Please note: The photos I share here, of our time in France, are to be used as reference for doing watercolors for your personal journals or postcards only. I please ask that they are used soley for that purpose:-)
Here’s a “taste” of the market in Cahors….

I got so carried away I forgot to paint at the market. So I sat a street cafe and juggled an ice cream cone, coffee and watercolors. I will post that carte postal tomorrow, for now….here’s the latest page in my journal.
You probably spy some new colors on my watercolor kit above.I was left alone in an art supply store in France and well ….THINGS HAPPEN.
