Fiesole II

I've been to Italy a few times now, and love it. This is also small, 40x40cm, and one of a pair based on a series of sketches I took while on a day excursion to the hillside village of Fiesole, near Florence in Tuscany. Dolf and I were enjoying the shade around the Roman Amphitheatre in the village, and happily there were also some young artists on some kind of summer school, and they were busy doing sketches of the surroundings. Now I like doing landscapes, but I like doing people better ....

Fiesole II, 2007, oil on canvas.

This painting is now in a private collection in Ireland.
