MORE FROM THE ATLANTIC COAST

Hi!

More sketches from Pornichet.
This time, I had the opportunity to draw the cost from the sea ,  the tide was low

























The last sketch was done in the village called Kervalet. It's an old city built in the 10e century by salt's workers. Located near the pond salt  where they worked, the "paludiers" (salt's workers ) were living in the smallest houses. The others, with one floor are the houses where the "Sauniers" (workers transporting the salt, according Wikipedia) were living.
They are builded with stone granit and slates on the roof.
