While in Italy for an art workshop in Tuscany with my pal Joan, we visited Portovenere, a port town just south of the Cinque Terre area. I took a snapshop of two women considering a seaside restaurant menu in the warm noonday sun. At home I painted the scene on a full sheet of Yupo, a surface I don't use often. I do enjoy the results, a very painterly look. I really had to work at getting the paint onto the surface.
We've been busy all week teaching cycling and attending a cycling conference. Tomorrow, though, I get to see a Don Andrew's demo at the watercolor society. Can't wait!
