Florence Spring 2018

Thursday 31 May 2018

In April I spent a couple of weeks in the magical city of Florence where I started my career as a painter. I painted a head study alongside a friend of mine whilst there as well as painting some of the stunning Italian landscape in and around the city.

I enjoyed painting in the Boboli Gardens especially and was really taken by the light that flooded on to the Viottoloni Avenue one afternoon as I was walking around deciding where to pitch my easel. The sun was soon overridden by some large clouds and it began to rain. The rain came and went and I was thankfully able to finish my painting!

While I was in Florence I set up my easel above the city in Pian Dei Giullari where I used to go as a student to escape the sometimes hot and crowded city for some fresh countryside air. Although a steep climb up the hill, the views are extraordinary; rolling tuscan hills and olive groves seem to go on for miles. I painted up there on a couple of occassions.
