Paintings of Italy

For more than 15 years, I have been building up a collection of  paintings of Italy. Before embalming on the finished watercolour, I like to spend time in the chosen location making at least one small watercolour on location to trigger off memories of the mood and feel of the place. For the San Gimignano Original painting of San Gimignano, I wanted to capture the famous towers bathed in the warmth and clarity of late afternoon sunlight, that would evoke happy memories for those fortunate people who have spent lazy days under the Tuscan sun.

I spent a day and a half driving about the surrounding countryside, wandering in and out of the medieval town. Enjoying the occasional glass of wine and sampling wild boar salami in-between painting and taking reference photographs. However, it was not until we left San Gimignano that the sky turned a wonderful pink. Creating a beautiful golden hue on the various buildings and in particular the famous towers. I took some photographs from the car and logged the colours in my mind. This is the mood I wanted to capture as I began the finished piece that has been a successful limited edition print. Since then, I have painted the scene again as an original watercolour which you can see online or at my Studio & Gallery in Ponteland.
