Dreaming of Tuscany

Hi Everyone, hope you all had a nice weekend. We had a very nice long weekend. It was Victorida day here on Monday and we had the day off. We did lots of gardening and work around the house, deck, etc.

Today I managed to work on a new idea and sketch for a new painting. My new painting will be the beautiful hillside of Tuscany with all the beautiful colours. It is a sketch from my imagination. I looked at lots of pics today from our travels to beatiful Tuscany and I could not find the exact pic I was looking for, so I created my own of the stunning Tuscany hills, landscsapes, etc. I was dreaming of the beauty and wish I was there...

I cant wait to paint this one. I have been wanting to do this since a very long time...since I was living in Denmark. Thought I would share the pic with you of my sketch.

Also some pics attached of my own villa in Cumberland, in Ontario...lol. Its not Tuscany but we love it! Have a great week everyone and happy painting
