In Tuscany


In Tuscany

I thought I would return to Tuscany once more and try to apply some of the lessons I've been trying to learn. What I felt when I painted this was a bit more relaxed, a bit less concerned if washes bled, if the olive trees weren't exact and more, that I was getting a bit closer to suggesting things. Though this is not quite as loose as I wanted -- I'm certainly getting closer.

We're taking a group to the NC Tobacco Farm Life Museum for a dip into North Carolina agricultural history -- so I'll catch up with everyone tomorrow.

It's going to be a sunny 75F today-- so we should have a wonderful day to be outdoors ....

Have a great one!

Lovely; you achieved your goal! It's so interesting to see your very structured Italian paintings next to this one. Both are gorgeous of course!

Have a nice sunny day!
Hugs,
