Tuscan Spring


 My painting 'Tuscan Spring' has been selected for the Stockport Open Exhibition ... I'm chuffed ;) It's mixed media: acrylic and oil pastel in many layers. I have painted this scene a few months ago but wasn't happy with the light and depth of texture, especially in the grasses. So I revisited it :)

This lovely path winds through the Tuscan countryside on the way to Capella Santa Maria di Vitaleta (that much photographed hilltop church in St Quirico). I walked along this path with my husband as far as the chapel ... and back again.

Vic, Caroline and Jane, my sincere apologies for such a late reply but life has been a little hairy and i've not been online much.

Vic, thanks for your comment. I'm constantly srtiving to move away from 'realism' but my work always turns out this way! lol. I think, in the end, you just have to paint the way you paint :)

Thanks Caroline, I haven't exhibited for a while so it's nice to get back to having work in public again.

Jane, grazie! It would be nice to do a Tuscany exhibition but I don't have one planned ... who knows ... :)
