Watermill Tuscany 2018 watercolour course painting #10 - Painting in the village of Monte del Bianchi

Watermill tuscany 2018 #10

The last day on last years trip as a Painting Tutor at the Watermill in Posara, and a trip up into the mountains to the village of Monte del Bianchi.  An almost 'deserted' village, very peaceful and quiet.  Our group went down to the end of the village and painted at the back of the village church.  A washing line caught my eye and inspired me to do this scene framed by a couple of  'pencil' Italian Cypress trees.

Painted of Saunders Waterford, Cold Press, 300 gms.

 


Watermill Tuscany 2018 watercolour course painting #8 - Visit to a local monastery

Watermill tuscany 2018 #9

Day 5 as painting tutor on last years course at the Watermill in Tuscany and a visit to nearby 'Il Convento dei Carmine', a privately owned monastery with ancient cloisters and frescoes, gardens and views.  Lots of different views around the monastery and the internal cloisters (very tricky with lots of columns, shadows and perspective.  I decided to do an external shot with my demo and invented a gardener pushing a wheelbarrow.
