A few small watercolors from my Italy sketchbook feel laid back ~ Italian style.
I had this idea that “Tuscan Colors” ~ were Yellow and Orange, Terra Cotta. I was not at all expecting the blues and violets, or the sky. These 5 paintings show the vibrant range of Tuscan colors.
I love these colors!
These 5 watercolors take me right back to that precious afternoon with my friend Sally.
We sat out on the riverfront in Tappahannock and painted watercolors.
Such a sweet memory to warm me on this cold January afternoon!
La Dolce Vita
My dream was to absorb the Tuscan lifestyle into my art and life. When we arrived, Danilo’s son Lorenzo asked if we would like an American Mr. Coffee maker for our apartment. “Oh, no! We wish to absorb the Italian way!”
And thus we began learning to brew Italian coffee with the Biggeletto pot.
