It's been raining on and off for the last few days, and with work as busy as it's been, I haven't had a moment to even begin getting excited about my trip -- so yesterday, I found this photo of a Tuscan Orchard and thought I'd work on a bit of Italian-countryside practice. I've noticed that I've sketched this before ... guess I need to renew my stash of photo references!! LOL And seeing this on my monitor, I wish I had made the rows just a tad spikier ...oh well, next time.
Worked a bit outdoors in between the raindrops to plant a few more flowers and vegetables, ran some errands, and tried practicing some 'loose' paintings -- which turned out to be more of a mess than anything else ... lol
We're off to the Farmer's Market - strawberries are in already, and I need to pick up a few items for the trip. I have one more week to work, equally intense as the last three have been. But then --- R&R and Italy --- SIGH!!!
