Orquevaux Residency series - 1


The Chateau

9/16

Our time in Paris went by very fast. Less on tourist activities though. I spent most of the time on getting my art supplies provisioned, meeting new artists and practicing my French skills.


On Monday morning, I rented a car at Paris- Rivoli, using my newly acquired French-speaking skills . (My French teacher Andre would be proud of me). Driving out of Paris during Monday morning rush hour was a little challenging, but once I got onto the National Highways it was a smooth ride in my (Automatic) Audi🤳 I was lucky to get from the car rental agency.


The Three hour drive to Orquevaux was picturesque and the Landscapes were stunning as I had imagined. On arrival, I am assigned a studio in main Chateau building and my living arrangement is in a pretty French house just few step outside the Chateau in the village.

9/17

After quick breakfast, I visited Chamount nearest big town (30 mins from Orq) for locating supplies and groceries along with some other artists I met here on my first day. I am posting some picture of the town.


In the afternoon, I got my work started - a quick landscape (posted above) and getting my supplies arranged for in studio work.
