Daily Painting Tuscan Doorway ~ plein air oil painting retreat Italy

I love this door! My sisters call me ‘Dorr,’ so doorways have special meaning when they show up. I guess I am a portal!

I am slowly creating a whole series of doors, doorways and windows. What attracted me to this one was the iron scroll work in the rounded arch at the top. So many of the doorways in Tuscan buildings are understated. This really peaks my imagination about what is on the other side! I painted this one with a palette knife on cradled wood panel.
