An Original Watercolour Painting inspired by sketchbook watercolours painted on location in Florence.

Florence Sketchbook

To do a Painting of Florence is always a joy and delight. Last September I was working in Florence on a number of painting projects. One of which was painting several street scenes on the spot in my hand-made watercolour sketchbook.

In the photograph of what’s on the drawing board you will see the sketchbook depicting my watercolour study of Via di Spirito Santo painted standing up with my small box of paints balanced in one hand with the sketchbook, the other holding my traveling paint brush.

I was able to produce several streets scenes like this in my sketchbook whilst I was in Florence. Sketchbook painting on location is always a delight, especially in Florence. It was an intense fortnight of study at the Charles Cecil Studios. I don’t think I’ve ever painted as much in my life, not even when I was an art student.
