"Morning Grove at Villa Cimbrone"

I first did the quick watercolor and value study of this grove at Villa Cimbrone in Ravello, Italy, during a workshop with Gail Browne. A short morning shower had just passed through and the scene was fresh and filled with soft morning light. I wanted to recapture this great scene using a limited color palette that would evoke the beauty and sense of place of this magnificent grove.
Gail Browne organizes wonderful and instructive painting trips on the Amalfi coast. If interested in future Italy workshop information, contact Gail here.
