Last Day - French Riviera Art Trek with Niki Gulley and Scott Williams

Day 6, Villefranche - French Riviera Art Trek
SOLD • 12" x 9" textured oil painting by Niki Gulley

On the last day of our Plein Air Painting and Photography Workshop that my husband, Scott Williams, and I led in the French Riviera, we all enjoyed a leisurely morning. The painters went down to the harbor and set out to capture the turquoise Mediterranean one last time, while the photographers shot around town and others visited the sights in Villefranche. Dining for lunch one last time along the waterfront, we gave everyone the afternoon to swim, shop or relax. 

We gathered later that day to view a slide show of the photography students' work and to show the paintings we created for the week. It's always so much fun to see what everyone captured during the trip, with each student's perspective so unique! That night we dined on a delicious dinner, sad that the trip was ending but glad that we got to enjoy it with new friends.

Dining near the waterfront in Villefranche.

Next summer we will be leading an Art Trek to Spain and the following year we will be headed to Tuscany, England and Ireland, so if you've always dreamed of painting, photographing and sightseeing in Europe, please join us for one of these amazing trip! Details will be coming soon on
