Todi, Italy

3 x 6 in., oil on linen on panel, 19 March 2009

This is my fifth and final Italy painting. I painted this on a pretty overcast day in Todi, Italy. Even so, there were birds singing loudly down below where I was working. I find that overcast days are great for painting because the low light allows more subtle color shifts to be seen in the landscape. As for this location, Todi is a short bus ride away from Perugia. If you want to see exactly where it is, click here. I think this view is facing in the direction of Orvieto.
