Just come back from my trip to Italy. I spent 9 nights in a little town called Cetona and every day I had to get a train from the station at Chiusi (a bus ride away). It was a painting trip and I've posted the paintings I did there, mainly at Lake Trasimeno, from Castiglione del Lago and Tuoro sul Trasimeno, but others from around Cetona and places in between. I haven't done much oil painting recently, but it was good fun wandering around Italy with my Pochade box and foldable stool. It's quite an experience painting 'plein air,' I had to contend with bugs, cramps and although it was actually pretty warm there, once the sun set it got very cold quickly. I plan to continue my exploration into oils, but it means that my updates will probably slow down a bit. Still trying to find a job too.
