The Red jersey won by Mark Cavendish painted in watercolours.

After watching the Giro d’Italia live at Borghetto, I felt I just had to put paint to paper.

It made me feel so inspired and to feel this when you paint brings out the passion in your painting.

Ladies Lunch Italian Style

Ladies Lunch Italian Style
Ladies Lunch Italian Style

Imagine a tiny village  situated on the edge of a Lake, with a ferry calling in every few hours and a couple of cafes on the lake edge. The cafe owner brings your cool drink across a quite street with a few aperitifs to enjoy. You sit back and enjoy the lazy day and watch a few passers go by. A handful of Ladies choose a table  in the shade,and began to chatter while prosecco’s  are passed around. This special little hamlet is called Riva di Solta on Lake Iseo and this is what inspired me to paint ‘Ladies Lunch Italian Style.

‘Ladies Lunch’ is available as an A3 size print

Price £50.00 including postage and packing.

 

 

Leisure painter in the Italian Lakes

Monte Isola

Take the ferry from Sulzano across to Monta Isola, it only takes five minutes to sail across. Walk along the shore and find a shaded spot. Ideally  under an Olive tree in the warm afternoon sunshine. Gaze across the bay to the tiny village of Sensole and begin to sketch. You will need to dip your feet often into the warm blue lake, this helps with the inspiration and also will help to magic the paintbrush across the paper.

This is how I painted ‘Monte Isola’ watercolour, if you would like to sample a little of this magic why not come to Lake Iseo on my painting holiday the date is Saturday 14th September 2013 for a week we will stay at the stunning Rivalago on the Lake shore for more information 

 

Carzone arriving by ferry

Carzone, Lake Iseo
Carzone, Lake Iseo

This is the view that welcomes you  arriving by Ferry at Carzone. Just one of the hidden jewels on Lake Iseo. To paint this special little Borgo I had to get a feel and sample it’s delights. Morning coffee was first sitting in the sunshine watching scooters whizz by, riden by ladies with bags of groceries held tightly between their ankles. I was now ready for finding a location for a few hours, down the narrow alleyways with flowers and tubs beside every ancient doorway. I watched a young boy wearing his Italian strip kicking a ball and clothes above our heads drying in the morning sunshine. So now I was ready to settle down and paint an Italian scene.
