A Fine Art original Watercolour of Montone, Umbria in Italy.

Montone is a beautiful medieval hilltop town in the region of Umbria, the green heart of Italy. We often take our guests there during our painting holidays in Italy as it has some wonderful street scenes to paint.

In May 2016 I did a tiny watercolour in my handmade sketchbook which became the inspiration for this larger study painted on deckled edged watercolour paper.

I’ve used a limited palette in keeping with my “en plein air” study to capture the strong sense of afternoon sunlight streaming down Via Roma. The long shadows and the couple strolling down the hill add movement to the scene.

This painting is now  SOLD

Montone is a beautiful medieval hilltop town in the region of Umbria, the green heart of Italy. We often take our guests there during our painting holidays in Italy as it has some wonderful street scenes to paint.

Everchanging, untouched landscapes in the green of winding valleys make Umbria a region that will never fail to amaze. This region comprises mainly hills, mountains, hollows and plains and extends along the Tiber’s central basin.
At the heart of the boot, it is the only region with no coastline.

It includes Lake Trasimeno, central Italy’s largest lake. The area still has the remains of Etruscan settlements, particularly around Castiglione del Lago, where the loveliness of the natural landscape combines with the romanticism and stillness of the lake.
Moving on from the two lakes, we come to the Cascate delle Marmore waterfalls near Terni, some of the most beautiful in Europe.
The waters dive into the River Nera with a spectacular drop, and are surrounded by lush vegetation. This is the spot for sports lovers who enjoy canoeing and kayaking.

Still in the province of Terni, tourists looking to get the feel of Umbria should not miss out on two gems one of them is linked to history and the other to the territory. Carsulae is an ancient Roman town traversed by the ancient Via Flaminia, where important public buildings have been discovered. We can still see the remains of the S. Damiano Arch, with particularly beautiful and fascinating surroundings. The other gem, closely linked to the area’s makeup is the Dunarobba Fossil Forest, a rare example of a forest that existed 3 million years ago, with very well-preserved tree trunks set in a lunar landscape.
