Another memory from my stay at the Tuscan watermill ... a welcome patch of dappled shade in the heat of summer.
I painted it primarily in acrylic (with small amounts of oil pastel) on hot pressed watercolour board. First I painted an underwash in watercolour to establish composition and values etc and then coated the board with a layer of acrylic matt medium. The smooth surface was gorgeous to paint on and I'll definitely be using it again.
