Le Port-Marly (France)

Port Marly, that you may know from the "The Flood At Port Marly" by Alfred Sisley, is situated near Bougival and , actually, not far from Paris. There are no more big floods since 1876 , but the river, barges and houses - all are there. Scrolling the path near the river you will find panels with a reproductions of Sisley, Pissarro and others , who used to paint in the area. It's a little bit alike travel in time. They called it 'Route des Impressionistes' ( The impressionist's road ) and you can do a walk in this "live museum" for free.


It also something else very cool there. Every year on May 1st, the local Rowing Club of Port Marly is running Impressionists Regatta. They called boats by names of artists. We painted, sitting on the steps of the club and had fun to hear discussions :
"You should take Renoir today"
"No, I'm going with Monet, I prefer Monet or Degas"
etc


We had a very pleasant time in Port Marly : scrolled the Impressionist's Road , met very nice people and of course painted on location.


Here is Andre - first day of our plein air. This painting was finished and sold at the same day.
