A painting afternoon in Cortona

An afternoon in Cortona

As we drive up the hill that leads us to the town of Cortona, I have no idea what awaits me on this painting journey. We arrive at the town lookout to a stunning view.  What a symphony for the eyes.

Now for the most difficult decision of the day, what view will I paint? Which perspective will I choose?  One thing I know for sure is that there will be Naples Yellow involved.  Slowly but surely I am learning to slow down and appreciate the subtle complexity of the landscape in pastel colors.

The land of Tuscany, where breathtaking views await and the journey continues… La dolce vita
