MOUNT SORACTE Oil on board 30cmsx20cms

This is the last of my little paintings of Monte Soratte (which I now realise, in English, is called Mount Soracte). The foreground was terribly busy since I’d put in nearly every flower when I painted it, so I’ve just simplified that and it seems to work much better.

This is another angle on that amazing mountain which turns out to be a very long mass of travertine and quite different from the usual, more compact view that I have usually painted.

We were painting in a sublimely lovely area; just us and nature, apart from a sudden frenzy as wild boys and their sheep dogs came hurling by on their bicycles; wonderful 🙂

Wild boys & dogs!
