Yesterday I spent time with my paints, more "plein air" paintings. My goal for the day was to better understand the Italian Cypress.
Vistas of Tuscany
Medieval town of Torrita di Siena
I decided to split the painting, creating a diptych
Our next stop is Cortona for two nights, possibly a day trip to Florence, ending the trip with 1 night in Rome. In a very strange way, the Tuscan landscape reminds me of Vermont (minus the medieval towns and Cypress)... rolling emerald greens with lush shrubs and trees... hills and valleys, breathtaking.
