La Durance

watercolour on paper 23 x 42cm (9 x 16.5″) €300 framed

The capricious rive Durance has been tamed, as has its brother, the Rhône. Now, its flow is regulated with valves that release water periodically. I walked around down in the bed but didn’t want to hang around since there were signs all over warning of these controlled flash floods.
