Tuscan Hill - loosely speaking
I continue to practice various techniques seeing how some of them might help me through some challenges I continue to have with watercolors.
This scene, painted a while back, is one of my favorites of Tuscany. What I like most about it is the size of the building against the landscape -- and the huge sky. I wanted to practice blending more colors on the paper ... and so attempted another, looser rendition of this scene. I"m hoping to see more of this type of view when overseas ... those urban scenes challenge me a bit too much! LOL
The weather has been cool, though the sun has been brilliant. The grands left me with a bit of their 'colds' .. so though the sun tempts me out of doors, the colder temperatures are a bit too much for plein air work right now. It's supposed to be a bit warmer today ..so if I can get this cough under control, I may venture out for a short amount of time ..
Hope your Sunday is warm and wonderful!
