The inspirational landscapes of the Giro d’Italia

Tuscan impression
8″ x 6″, watercolour

Watching highlights of the three week bike race around Italy has left me with some wonderful memories.  Not least the riders racing up mountains in blizzard conditions in late May.  But outside of the mountain days some of the most beautiful views were found in more modest landscapes and this watercolour illustrates one of many fleeting impressions made as the racers sped through the towns and villages of Tuscany.

    I spend so much of my time in Turkey, researching articles for my blog… but one of these days, I’m going to have time to sit beside a harbour somewhere, and create some watercolours… this one above, is the style I love… where less is more… and the eye fills in the rest of the details. Love the colour palette you’ve used.

      Thanks for your comments Jay. I’m happy you like my new watercolour palette, the extreme heat means I don’t use it as much as I might. I admire your blog, looks like a useful resource should I find myself in Bodrum. Best wishes, Tony
