My first Italian landscape-- of a series that will be developed over the next few months.
I've been to Tuscany-- to gather information -- and now have the time to translate some images into paintings.
It will be an exploratory series... until it begins to take shape.
I've started this painting on Ampersand Gessoboard -- which i like a lot. the paint wen on smoothly without much drag. I like the texture I was able to create.. as well as the matte dimensional look of the foreground.
Tomorrow Iwill work on the trees.. and develop the horizon line and nuances.
Hopefully-- it will all go well!
In the meantime.. I decided to post here.... as it's important for me to have feedback from you.
