There I was (in 1989?) trying to get to grips with painting with proper watercolours - and there was the BBC crew filming our painting party. Actually I was trying to remember how to paint period as I'd not done anything for about 16 years!
I've still got the video of the BBC Holiday Programme featuring Ann Gregg trying a painting holiday in Provence - and all of us developing our paintings
Here's a couple of photos of our trip to Sault - a town close to where we are going to be staying in Provence. I'm looking forward to going back again to visit the market and seeing the lavender fields from the top of the escarpment.
The first photo below is of Ann Gregg - sat centre in a pink T shirt - painting produce on a market stall. It was taken by me sat in the shade and painting Ann Gregg painting the market stall! Little did I know that the BBC was off to the left of this view filming me painting Ann!

I think our film aired in the last episode of the season - complete with the evocative music from the Pagnol film Jean de Florette - which was filmed in the Vaucluse!
