"Radda Church Tower"

Every town has a big church and usually a tower. Some are more magnificent than others. This painting was done in the field in the town of Radda in Chianti. We stopped when we had a vantage point and pulled out our paints and went after it. It's a small town close to where we stayed. We went there several times for market days, shopping and wine. This was not one of my favorite paintings, but I received positive feedback from my fellow painters, so I decided to share it with you. My first paintings were done in watercolor because they are so fast and travel friendly. Later during the trip I got out my oils and did a complete set up to paint. Will post them soon.
