Following on inspiration from a wine tour weekend away in Prince Edward County a few weeks ago… i decided I’d work on 2 paintings I had started on this theme a while back. One got a full glaze (in transparent earth red) and I’m waiting for it to dry before working into it again; but this one kept me busy most of today. I stopped myself before working it to death, i’m liking the loose brushwork.
It usually takes time for me to perculate ideas absorbed from travel… i’m better at condensing and simplifying painting ideas if I give it a few weeks knocking about in my head first. So today, while painting this theme, I am also thinking about my recent trip to Rome, and how I felt about that eternal city.
