End of year catch up – Italy

“Abandoned Farmhouse Via Celli Civita Castellana” watercolor

It’s been quite a while since I last wrote anything here. Since then, I spent a very hot month and a half in Italy, one month of which was a painting residency at the Jerusalem Studio School Summer program in Civita Castellana. I attended the same program in the summer of 2014 and it was nice to see some old friends and to meet new folks. For me, that seems to be what I like most about it. The heat was oppressive though and I’ll think long and hard before spending another July in Italy.

As before, I worked mainly in watercolor. I’m not sure why except that it’s more mobile, faster and less cumbersome than oils.
