Le Tristan

Ile le Tristan
Our first full day in Douarnenez today and the rain has definitely followed us from Saint Malo.
Thanks to my umbrella I was able to stand out in the rain this morning working on this. The island you can see is called Le Tristan, and as I painted it kept disappearing and reappearing through the fog and rain.
It was really the lovely green reflections in the sea that I was interested in.
Afterwards I got soaking wet walking around looking for some lunch. This afternoon I ended up painting the beautiful breakfast room here at the hotel, which was especially enjoyable as the other artists kept coming in for cups of tea to warm up and dry off!


  1. Great recession and strong colour and value. The composition works well also.

  2. Une très belle peinture... Je vous plains effectivement, sous la pluie ce n'est pas très agréable de peindre... Un lieu stratégique cependant.
    Vos couleurs sont très belles.
    Ma fille et mon fils vivent en Bretagne à Plouescat et cette année m'ont-ils dit, il fait particulièrement mauvais temps. Heureusement que les paysages sont merveilleux cela pardonne !

    Gros bisous à vous...

  3. Estupendo cuadro!! Me gustan en especial las texturas que creas, los colores y la atmosfera de la pintura, con un resultado muy bello. Te felicito!! Un cordial saludo.

  4. Lovely painting, Haidee. It was so much fun to paint next to you that morning.


Thank you for your words!
