Washing Day Vernazza

Washing day vernazza

Vernazza, Italy, 15" x 11"

Hope to see you Vernazza in October (I'm a tutor on a weeks painting workshop in the area)!  Washing hanging out to dry across tall buildings really gives an opportunity to sneak in some lovely shadows and contrasts (white bed sheets are best!).  A lovely location to paint.  Visitor numbers might be a bit lower this year assuming no big cruise ships visiting the area.

A plein air done shortly after my YouTube 'Bodycam' recording  but looking in the opposite direction up towards the abbey and a pretty tea shop on the right hand side.  Only distraction were some Japanese Tourists asking directions for Harry Potter - I assume there was some exhibition on locally.  Anyway a fairly loose and quick painting of this pretty village.  Many painting subjects there.

Painted on Saunders Waterford, Cold Press, 300 gms.
