CHM Sunset

Here is the last painting I did while staying at CHM. This was painted from around 8:00 to about 9:30 pm in the evening. The latitude where we were staying is very far north relative to us here in the U.S. It looks to be parallel with Nova Scotia or New Brunswick in Canada, hence the lovely long days with dusk lasting well into the late evening. The week we were there was blessed as well with warm days and only lightly cool evenings, so it was easy to stay out painting until it was almost too dark to see.
The next afternoon we were off, back to Bordeaux for the night, then up at 4 am in order to check in and catch the 8:30 flight to Paris, and from there back to the states.
Our stay in Montalivet was much too short...we hope to return, but who knows?
