This is the recap of the
|Our hosts on this trip, Travelers Jim and Cathy.|
|Day One Painting - |
I wanted to start off this little series with with a good painting to set the tone. With this one I feel I did.
|Day 2 -|
When I'm out in the field painting (plein air) I only get a matter of hours to get a painting done from start to finish. And that is how I approached Jim M's travel days.
As you can see, I had to cut down a lot on what I was going to paint from his photos and focus on things that allowed me to be done in the small time frame, but yet make a nice painting.
I tried to capture Walter, but he was a little tricky to catch a lot like the real one I was told.
This painting signals how this whole mini series came about. If it wasn't for another Travelers painting that I was working on I would have never have come across Traveler Jim M.
This is the painting. Traveler Jim happened to have a photo on his website from this very spot and sent it to me after I contacted him about it.
His photo did answer some questions I was having.
Orta San Giulio. again. The roofs and the mountains was a good place to end this trip I thought.
