Just thought I'd show you all some of the new watercolors I've been working on so far this year. Trying to make Tuesday my "Painting Day" where I set aside the day for painting. As you can see, today is Tuesday and I'm stalling -- posting these past works. I did a drawing this morning that I now need to work on and I'm just mulling it over before I put brush to paper.
This one was done while sitting on a hillside at Abbott's Mill on a warm day in January. I can't wait for the weather to be warm enough (it's getting there) for me to go back and do some more paintings of the other buildings at this nature center near our home.
These next two were painted from our photographs.
This was a scene we encountered after climbing to the highest point in the very white city of Ostuni, in Puglia. We spent a few days there when we lived in Vietri on the Amalfi Coast.
We encountered this crusty old gate in the mountains around Chianchetella, near Benevento, where my great-grandfather Pellegrino Fabrizio was born and some distant cousins still live.
