Chianti and Baratti Sketches

Daniela Astone and I just finished our back-to-back plein air courses in Chianti and the gulf of Baratti. We had 19 glorious days of sunshine during the two ten-day sessions. Here are a few of the sketches I managed to bat out during my time off from teaching.

  1. Hi Marc!! You aren’t going to believe this , but I’m in Carmel Valley with my brother and my
    artist sister-in-law, and we hung her new show in their art gallery/wine tasting shop called “Chesebro Wines” in the
    Village. Hope you and your parents stop by sometime!!

    ps. I met you in Florence ten days ago with Margot Kent!! I love your paintings!! They
    are awesome!!!!

  2. Marc,

    I love your work, these sketches are wonderful! I am a painter also, and I always check your site for beautiful work and inspiration. Do you sell any of your pleir air work? Thanks for sharing.
