Ah! The challeneges of Plein air painting with my french family
Once I got the full tour of the grounds of the Chateau de Maumont, I had to return to the small 16th century (or older?) chapel tower and get myself situated. My tour guides, the children, saw it as an inspiring opportunity as well and so... wanted to join in. Little Daphne is quiet a good painter. I loved watching her put in details as she created a painting of her home. Tess also did several paintings- she emphasized the door bell which I had completely left out, and Hector... well, when he wasn't terrifying me on the crumbling steps, he just wanted me to draw tractors in my sketchbook.
