Volterra Sketches

Badia Camoldolese #1. 25 x 35 cm, oil on panel.

Here are some of my sketches from our plein air workshop near Volterra. We had good weather for the ten days, even if the wind was problematic at times. I find wind can be harder to work with than rain.

  1. Nice painting Marc, I especially like the Badia Camoldolese and the Fortress at Dawn. Well done!

  2. Wonderful painting! They are painted on reddish or pink ground? It looks like the colour of the earth below shining through, really nice.

  3. Marc. Is Badia Camoldolese #1 for sale? I am interested in buying it. It is stunning.
