Painting Around Porchiano in February



We're having a rather mild February, it's was about 60°F today.  

I decided to take a little drive around Porchiano del Monte.  It's such a treat to go back to the same places I painted during the summer and notice radical color changes.

This is a perfect place for the Spring & Summer Workshop.






Daisy is always trying to get in the photo!













Here is the view of Monte Cimino in Lazio.  
The morning winter sky has such delicate colors.





The view towards Cesi. 

Have you ever been in Umbria?  
Where?  I'd love to know.

Ha! I think you should paint Daisy into one of your landscapes ;)

Not being at all able with a paintbrush, I have to limit myself to photography.

Italy is highly photogenic and equally paintogenic ;)

Cheers,

Alex

I've been in Umbria where I was a little girl so I don't remember those particular landscapes and colors, I just have the memory of the calm that I felt over there.

It's nice to see the spring coming ;)
Have a nice day Caridad!

Yes, it certainly is calm!
Have a great day, thank you Nicoletta.

Hahaha, Daisy's always running around in the puddles and being obnoxious! I don't do dogs. ;-)
Lets see your photos.

Maria Helena, your english is fine!
If you really want me to correct you, here it is:
"..not only see this place but also live IT WITH ALL MY SENSES".
Thanks for commenting!
