Back Street Montisi, 11x14
Rain, Sun, Clouds, Wind....
.....It was an afternoon that provided everything. Marianne and I had wandered around our Italian town looking for an interesting place to paint that was a little protected. This alley was IT.
I liked the way this little road disappeared around the corner and how a 'local' would suddenly appear, obviously taking the 'short cut'. They weren't sure what to make of us but they were all friendly.
Since painting all those weather conditions wasn't going to work I had to pick one so whenever the sun peaked out I memorized the light pattern. It is all just shapes and bit of color but I like how it all goes together.
Every town in Tuscany has it's own charm....and we will be going back in 2015.
Marianne painted that little door peaking out on the right. I'm going to bug her to get it posted. It was a nice painting.
