In Southern Italy

I have just returned from a painting holiday in Southern Italy, staying in Matera, and in Alberobello in Puglia.  Here are some watercolours from this trip, all painted on location.  Matera is famed for the Sassi cave dwellings which are believed to have been inhabited for 7000 years.  The view of the town, topped by the tower of the cathedral with a river gorge below was certainly challenging.  We then moved on to Alberobello, which is known for the trulli buildings, a traditional form of rural building now a focus of the tourist industry.

From here, we visited Monopoli, Polignano a Mare, and Locorotondo.  Here are some other paintings I made on this trip:
