Tuscan Church Watercolour



3" x 3" Watercolour - Tuscan Country Church
3" x 3" watercolour - paper 6" x 6"

Painted on this morning's walk.

Currently 37ºC, too hot to be out painting! The colours were drying on my brush before I could get them on to the paper.

These are both really delightful and so tiny, I love the gentle loose style that you have with them

Laureline said...

What a wonderful little jewel of a sketch! I note, with Terry, the looseness of the style and marvel that you can achieve that in such a small scale! You're giving Sara Midda a real fun for her money!

Cathy said...

That is just gorgeous Robyn. Was this the one that you said was too difficult?

Lin said...

ABSOLUTELY STUPENDOUS, ROBYN! WISH I WERE THERE WALKING WITH YOU!

Robyn said...

Terry - thank you. I loved seeing your iris painting!

Laura - Your encouragement is always treasured :) I didn't know Sara Midda and am a bit frustrated that there are only tiny publishing related sketches on the internet. It is nice though, to be compared to someone who is so obviously successful. She reminds me a little of the paintings of Mary Fedden, whom I adore. Also like Sara's use of the white line - which is what I've been chasing in my woodcut printmaking. Anyway I'll keep at it and see if my own style evolves.

Cathy - thank you. No, this isn't the church that is 'too difficult' but I will take the hint and walk back there and attempt it when it's not so hot.

Lin - I wish I'd been more dedicated to getting on and sketching when you were here. Next time!

Robyn, gold stars on two counts - the lovely loose water colours and(huge glittering star!)walking in 37 deg C.
Yes, I think I'd like to see that other old church, maybe with the priest, too...?
Well done!

the textures in this are really great :D I really like how you have done the roof, really looks like tiles

Must say I wish I was walking with you, and looking over yur shoulder to see how you are doing it.
Does sound a bit warm,

This is lovely. Jim (my husband) was looking over my shoulder when I pulled this up. He said he really likes it, too:)
