Poggio Boldrini, San Giovanni D'Asso - 11th November 2009
It's autumn in Tuscany, and I'm here for 3 months on top of a hillside surrounded by valleys of oak, ash, birch, and elder. I'm here to paint mostly, and to rest, walk, escape part of the English winter at least and perhaps learn a bit of Italian. First impressions from the Capanna...I'm working in sketchbooks for the first few weeks just to see what happens. The autumn colours are great, and the sun is still warm.
