It’s often said France offers everyone something and as both a lover of French wine and a painter of such diverse subjects, Paul certainly thought so. He loved to wander to get a feel for the place and paint in and around French life – capturing morning cafes in town squares, a lazily parked Citroën, a game of boules and the joy and bustle of a French market. During the nineties, Paul ran painting holidays on the banks of the Tarn painting rural agricultural scenes and gentle village life. Latterly, he visited Sommières and painted the water and café life of Île de Ré, both places he returned to. The coastline of Brittany, marine life and a day on the beach are all beautifully captured in Paul’s France collection including paintings of Cancale, Dinard and Honfleur.
