I am currently in Italy for a while on a kind of self imposed residency to draw and paint what I see, a bit like doing your exercises to keep fit, and for me drawing takes me to my happy place so its never a chore! I am very fortunate to have a friend living here and in a spectacularly beautiful area. The view from the house is of a mountain and it is constantly changing. I have found myself drawn to it and have watched it for hours a bit like ‘slow’ television. These are some of my quick watercolours capturing different times of the day.
