Thanks for following my posts, your comments are always most welcome.
We recently drove through France, visiting friends and eventually driving to Tuscany for few days.
In a few quiet moments I managed to paint some quick sketches of The Dordogne, Lot et Garonne and the area around San Gimignano in Tuscany.
We found a lovely Agriturismo to stay at, within sight of San Gimignano, call La Lucciolaia, which we would highly recommend if you are staying in that area.
I hope these will form the basis for more studio paintings later in the year, but in the meantime I hope you enjoy looking at them.
Tuscany is beautiful place for painting with blue skies,warm weather and lovely old towns and cities.
Enjoy your travels wherever you may be.

Evening at Dome from Vitrac Recently a friend and very talented artist, Peter Robson, gave a workshop which included ideas for silhouette paintings. I have tried it here with the view of Dome in the Dordogne from our hotel. Thanks Peter!
Monpazier is a Bastide town in the Lot and Garonne region of France, well worth a visit.
A street in San Gimignano in Tuscany. San Gimignano is famous for its 14th century towers.

After spending 40 years in Aerospace I now enjoy painting watercolours of our travels around the world.
I also paint for others who would like reminders of there favourite places.
Most of my paintings are painted from photos that I have taken, or taken by others.
This blog shows some paintings from Yvonne's and my travels together.
