9" x 12" Arches 140# CP
After hiking up and down those hills, I settled in the shade of an arched alley to paint his incredible door and array of flowerpots. My friend, Judy, sketched 15 feet around the corner to sketch the wheelbarrow we found there as well. The temperatures were in the 90s, and so the cool of the shade was important to us! LOL
The numbers of pots and flowers at this residence FAR exceeded what I sketched ...and the door was a dull brown. In order to give this image more of that glorious Italian light, I lightened the building and made the door a color I thought was more interesting.
The summer heat has descended here as well. Yesterday we were in the low 90s with equal humidity. Mercy, at this rate, August is going to be miserable! LOL So where is the gelato when one needs it????
