Description

San Gimignano Giclée Print was inspired from studies.  They were first painted on location in my leather-bound sketchbook and then the larger works completed in my studio in Ponteland, Northumberland. You can read more information about that from my blog by clicking HERE

They call San Gimignano the City of the Beautiful Towers rich in History, Art & Culture surrounded by the spectacular Tuscan countryside in Italy.

In this painting the famous towers of San Gimignano Giclée Print are bathed in warm, late afternoon sunlight.

From a distance it looks like a mini Manhattan with its 14 towers gracing the Tuscan skyline. Apparently it did boast 72 towers, built by the Patrician families who controlled the town. The bigger the tower, the greater your wealth! I painted a watercolour by the well in Piazza della Cisterna whilst Susan went off to buy some wild boar salami for an al fresco lunch. Even though it was February, it was bright, warm and sunny, ideal conditions for painting “en plein air”.

After lunch I spent the afternoon wandering about gathering further reference to do a studio painting to add to my Italian Collection of Limited Edition Prints by Alan Reed.
