Sketched and Painted in Studio
After all that climbing around Civita, we returned to La Romita for a much needed nap! LOL
After restoring myself with sleep and feet propped, I worked on this painting in my travel journal. I have to admit that it was one of the ones I was most pleased with during this trip.
I find so much stimulation difficult to synthesize immediate in order to get down to the business of painting. I am transported to dreamland as images, sounds, feelings, scents, ideas play over and over in my mind. Knowing that this was the last hill town of the tip, I wanted to savor each and every moment of the experience ... but gratefully, later that day, I could settle down to paint.
Does this happen to anyone else?
