Cortona


We drew in the plaza. 


The gelato bike was our beginning focus but we went many directions. 


Gloria is a shy sketcher!


We walked up to St Margaret’s Basilica. Beautiful!


Then we continued up to the fort. 


What a view!  I always carry my pen to the top! 







Francoise gave a praying mantis a lift. 

Walking down from the top while viewing the mosaic stations of the cross. 

Back home for show and tell


Here’s what we sketched today. 


We like to paint into the night! Andrea is singing and playing the guitar. Heavenly!

Volterre!

A lesson in Perspective. 









My work in progress. Started with a watercolor wash brush then inked. 





The Medicis, Season III was being filmed in town. I joined them. 



Even the Medicis need to check their email. 

What a view!
