I've been painting since our LAST Italy trip, and now it is time to PACK the paints and leave again!
We will start our vacation in Varenna, on Lake Como.
We hope to see some of the beautiful villas on the lake.
I'm working on a view of the Gulf of Poets right now, as we will be in Lerici for 5 days.
Then a week in Piemonte, where we will see the grapes just before the harvest.
I haven't painted anything that reminds me of Bologna (FOOD is what always comes to mind), but I'm sure we'll see a church or two! I plan to take lots of photos of porticos to paint when we return.
Yesterday, I tried to paint my own back yard!
I think I learn one tiny new thing with each painting I do. I'm learning about water, reflections, layers of leaves, what to paint first or last in a scene, or different uses for different brushes. My paintings aren't much better yet, but I really relax when I paint, and it keeps me out of the shops and the fridge! Lessons are definitely in the works for this winter!
