Painting in the Midi-Pyrenees – Art supplies.
This area has few art supply stores and the choice has been going to Toulouse or to Carcassonne. So far I have explored the art store in Carcassonne, Vaissiere Peintures. I managed to purchase a collapsible, light-weight aluminum field easel there for less than 30 Euros. It has been a good buy and quite sturdy. Their store has a good supply of paint, paper and canvasses as well as other supplies. A second store called Cultura promises to be a good one, however, I have not managed to check that one out yet.
