So I arrived far too early.
My teacher gave me a huge book to look through about impressionist artists. I do love all those types of paintings although the only one that I have is on my umbrella!!
The first hour, the beginners class, there were only three of us there and it was tough for me, grammar, grammar, grammar. Hour two the more advanced class more people arrived. We then spent a lot of time learning the words for bark, meow, neigh, oink, baa, etc. Seems to me the brainier ones have got it easy! I knew most of the words because I watch French tv.
Anyway back to the artists, there was one name in the book that I was not so familiar with Gustave Caillebotte, I fell for this street painting in the rain in Paris. Link here and here.
Today's first picture is a horse in a field up the hill, I think that he had been rolling in the mud a bit, he is very friendly, but tosses his head around a lot.
Sepia ChevalMy favorite picture of two horses together is this one that I took at the Comice Agricole last summer where many Breton horses were on show. Mum with her foal.
The French word for rain is pluie.
The French word for although is quoique.
Etymology for the word sepia.
