Visiting friends last weekend on the French Riviera I couldn't resist popping down to Cannes for the last day of the Film Festival. I didn't see any screenings -I just wanted to sit outside a cafe & sketch the colourful folk passing by.
Here's a view of the old town of Frejus where I stayed.
I made sure to find time to visit one of my favourite art galleries- the Musee Picasso at Antibes.
For years I had a print on the wall of Picasso's 'La Joie de vivre' at home in London. In Antibes they have the original!
Back in Cannes for lunch the day after the festival closed everything was back to normal & the crowds had evaporated.
