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.
