San Gimignano Abstract Landscape

Tuscan painting retreat

San Gimignano is the Tuscan hill town known for it’s towers. I was more interested in the wonderful panoramic landscape surrounding San Gimignano. The towers do make a great crown on the horizon!

This painting evolved with my time here. It began as a wash drawing. As my ideas about painting Tuscany fermented, so did my brush work. The last few strokes of the painting are palette knife. I rather like where we ended up.
