About the Book
A book for the traveler or artist. Nyla Witmore takes the best stories and sketches from 5 sketchbook journals created on painting trips to France. This is a laugh-out-loud book that reads a bit like Mayle's book, "A Year in Provence," but is actually "two weeks in Burgundy." Replete with wit, humor, adventure (sometimes scary), Witmore gives insight into the process of painting on location and provides ink/watercolor sketches that are charming, fresh, and colorful. The book culminates in finished oil paintings based on sketches.
Since 1979 I have authored 4 books. In 1990. I have been represented by numerous fine arts galleries and am currently represented by "Gingerbread Square Gallery" (Key West, FLA), and "Tirage Art Gallery " (Pasadena, CA). As a professional fine artist since 1990, I have had one woman shows featuring watercolors in the early years and currently focusing on oil painting. I continue to travel, paint and produce personal journals and sketches of my travels. My book with blurb contains the best collection of stories from my travels to France.
