Painting in Tuscany

Back in Minnesota after 9 days in beautiful Italy. Painted a bit but mostly location scouting for my upcoming Watercolor Tour of Tuscany in May 2016 . Hosted by B&B owner and tour guide Doris Fortino

My home base was just outside of Lucca. My neighbor, Elenora, saw me painting the barn and asked me to paint her dog Lila. I did. Then she asked me to paint her ducks. I did that as well. Luckily by then it was dark out, or I would’ve had to paint the chickens and cats too.
