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!

Thought something bright would distract me from the dreary Belgian weather.  This is the third time I’ve painted this scene, both the others sold so perhaps this will be lucky too!

Painted from a photo kindly supplied by an old friend (thanks Steve!)  Clouds bubbling up over Sardinia.  Unusually for me, I didn’t tone the canvas at all before starting in with the paint, and sketched the clouds with charcoal first.  Also used some liquin medium.  Seems to be going okay so far, but there’s still plenty of time to make a hash of it 😉
