Puy de Sancy - Sancy volcano

In Auvergne there are lots of old volcanoes and this is one of them: it's only about 6102 ft high. I didn't walk all the steps to the very top as I had decided to sketch it from a café table, sitting just outside the cable car arrival ( lazy me !)

  1. Really beautiful've captured the majestic elements of the strong mountain flawlessly =)

  2. With a view like that you HAVE to be lazy! How else would you be able to share it with us? Which you did beautifully by the way. Lovely! And I had no idea that there were volcanoes in Auvergne, see, you learn something new everyday!

  3. I'm playing a little catch-up, but your sketches are wonderful!! Wish I had a mountain to draw. You really captured the depth of it, the distance and height. I love the loose brushwork of the flowers at the door, the brushwork in the milk jugs (and the color - love the color), the castle is so impressive (I did a tudor house, something like that and it took me forever), and my favorite is the Livradois landscape - the sense of distance, the colors and values. Excellent work!

  4. Absolutely lovely! You portray the beauty of the landscape but with the power of the volcano understood to be now silent - but perhaps waiting - underneath.
    PS Please visit my history blog and don't forget to enter the GIVEAWAY! Some beautiful mountain scenes in it!
