Naked eye view - Watercolor on white paper and inverted.
This second watercolor was made on the edge of a donkeys field. In the background we see - a little bit too much for my wish - the lights of my village. At five AM local time, there is still life, the inn remains open all night to allow to local people to drink large rasads of a well-Provençal “pastis”.
