Italy-- First of the Last 3

Today was the day I put the sky in the last large painting for the Italian Series.

I felt it went okay -- but now ...I have to pull together the village and the foreground. I am heavily influenced by the other paintings gone before. Not a good thing... because I don't want it to feel derivative.

So... I hope by the time it's finished-- it will be a nice companion piece for the hilltop painting to the left.

Ah... I miss Italy.

So beautiful Carol!!! So glad that you still love Italy! It shows in your painting that it is a special place for you. You inspired me to pull out my Italy pics and paint a few.
