The last time we visited Siena in Tuscany I spent time painting Il Campo in my tiny sketchbook. These studies painted on location have been the inspiration for this larger watercolour.
A wash of Raw Sienna has been used to set the tone and mood for the warm base colour of the distinctive architecture.
The figures basking in the warm Tuscan sun add to the lively scene. The wash of pale blue for the sky provides the necessary space for the eye to rest.
