Positano mountain top view

A work in progress in my new concertina sketchbook, a gift from a visiting friend. (I tried to post on instagram, but it seems iMovie music is not copyright free, which is weird.)

Anyway, here is a short video with my inklines. This is the view from my terrace.  It starts north of Positano. Then Montepertuso, Nocelle and the city of Praiano is at the very end.

Note that the elevation difference required me to start at the top again towards the end!

Italy. Again.

Getting ready for another travel adventure! Soon I will be back in Italy, again on the Amalfi coast.
Here’s a map showing the location: Italy watercolor map

I also prepared something to help me hold a moleskine sketchbook with my palette.
It’s a simple piece of sturdy cardboard, covered with contact paper, using clips to hold the items.
My brush and pencil case can stand on its own, or can be clipped to the corner of the board. Holder for palette & sketchbook

So – I should be set to tackle some serious fun, making art, enjoying the Italian wine and food, and soaking up the sun and sea.

Stay tuned for updates!

Positano 2014…and 2015 trip clues for you

Back in March 2014, I was in Positano, you may have seen my post before.
But, I just went through my sketchbook and found several sketches that weren’t scanned in.

On a different subject and a different trip:
A little clue about an upcoming trip I’ll be taking – it is titled “Blue boats beneath golden ramparts.”
And, surprise – one of my Italy sketches last year was of their blue boats! Coincidence?
Clue #2 – the trip won’t be in Europe! Hehe, more clues will follow!

Meanwhile, enjoy these from Positano…
