"Monteriggioni Church"

This is a partial view of the large church located in the walled town of Monteriggioni, Italy. This is such a quaint little town completely surrounded by high rock walls with lookout posts at the very top. The entire town is located on the top of a hill so they had great views of any enemies approaching. Now it's full of restaurants, gelato stores, art, gift shops and actual residences. We definitely enjoyed our time spent here.

This is lovely, Vic- colors are gorgeous, and your handling of the watercolor is great. I like the unusual composition, too.
another good job!

A beautiful picture, Vicki. The use of color shadings tells us where the sun is--it's really a nice representation. What a great memory keeper for you--almost like a photo, better because you created it yourself. Very special.
