Lovely work - challenging subject. I can appreciate the variety of technique here - wet on wet, and dry brush on the cliffs. Very good. :)

Oh my goodness, LOTS!! Sightseeing of course: lovely old towns and villages, castles, fortresses, cave dwellings, and caves with extraordinary stalactite and stalagmite formations.
And just a short distance to the north is the most famous cave of all: Lascaux with the stone-age paintings.
And when you are tired from sightseeing there's the food. Among the local delicacies: foie gras, truffles etc. etc. etc.
JC didn't want to leave! (Me neither) :laughing:

That seems like a perfect place for a visit. How far are you from Provence? It seems like many foreigners like to retire there. I wish I could, but hubby does not share my taste :-(
