a ravello fountain

Arches CP 300 gsm, 12" x 9".

after the storm we had a relaxing day in ravello. we walked the town, saw the infinity terrace and the surrounding mountainside villages, watched the light change and shopped for ceramics. we had a great lunch in a popular trattoria, and got there before the crowds did.

i painted this outside the hotel, my foot propped on the rim of the goldfish pond. i have never before painted a goldfish pond, this is my first.

i knew the iron railing would be difficult but i decided to paint it anyway. i had the block resting on my upraised knee and had to switch legs every 5 minutes or so. the paints were out of reach so i stooped to recharge my brush. an effort.
