OK, so we are one third of the way through with this challenge. Pat yourself on the back!

I am so lucky to be able to paint and teach workshops. I spent yesterday with eight wonderful artists and we painted a beautiful street scene in Florence, Italy. While it was a complex composition (and I think there were a few references to this!) I think it is important to challenge my students. Today we will ease it up a bit as we paint a boat scene from Cinque Terra. This will be a subject my students are very familiar with!

I took this photo while strolling through the streets of Florence with my boys. If I look back at all of my photos from our Italy trip, there are hundreds of street scenes. I love painting them!

Check out my new remodel blog for our new beach house in Ventura, Ca. Beginning this fall I will be teaching workshops at the beach. Come stay and paint with me! Click here for more information!

So gorgeous! I am reminded of similar work but for the life of me can't figure it out. Awesome style and technique on this piece.
