Ochre Quarry near Roussillon

by Susan Abbott

I'm on my way back to Vermont from Marseilles, with a few more Provence watercolors in my bag to post when I'm back home. This one was painted in an abandoned ochre quarry--the color in nature was really too bright for my ochre pigment to capture! Like Cezanne, I'd really need to return here again and again to understand these colors and forms.
