Watercolour. Size 20" x 16" (24" x 20" including mat/mount).
Inspired by my recent visit to Tuscany, I was drawn to the contrast of the long shadows cast by these lovely old pines agaist the sunlit autumn grasses. The little lady was not there but the house looked like it might belong to someone like her.
The painting is many layered and textured with wet-on-wet techniques including allowing the paint to float and dry in colourful puddles and some use of salt.
