Had a go at another plein air piece today, but rain stopped play (this is Belgium after all).  So thought I would post the block-in I did the other evening.  This is of a marketplace in Pisa, from a photo taken there last year.  I found the perspective quite challenging, especially of those vaulted ceiling arches.  Still not sure if I’ve quite got it right.

Just back from the annual trip to Tuscany.  Got a few rather mediocre paintings done.  Still have some more time off work so will be trying to get a few more under my belt, and hopefully pull the standards up a bit!
