The next few months of my paintings will undoubtedly be of many scenes from beautiful Northern Italy. In fact, the next few YEARS of paintings will probably be about how our trip there affected me.
This painting was inspired by a photo, but seeing the real thing, being in a location for a while REALLY inspires. With six women on our Italy excursion, we will paint almost everyday we are there, or at least some of us will paint. A few may choose to just watch. I'm sneaking in some YUPO in my painting supplies, just in case - only 6 small sheets, plus a little squeegee and very small foam roller.
I'm positive I will take ten times more photos than I can use. Thank goodness for 'delete' on digital cameras:o) If anything turns out ok, I'll post the paintings when we get home.
