ITALY

I spent the day in Italy today via the Virtual Paintout.
I found this location via Google Maps
The Google Map picture is below.
It is fun and I enjoyed going up and down the streets looking for a location to paint. I made a few sketches and the just painted this one taking artistic license with the light and color.

A perfect example of seeing the ordinary and turning it into extra-ordinary!! Absolutely beautiful -- LOVE your choice of COLOR!!

Wow! When I was reading your first words I thought: What?She was in Italy and didn't tell me anything? But then I realised you had been travelling virtually which is another way to find a source of inspiration, though I have to say that your watercolour is far better than the photo. Excellent idea!
