I began this painting with brushwork, but ended up slashing at it with a palette knife. Too bad I can’t post the highest resolution here because it’s pretty damned juicy. Photographs helped to document my walks on mostly unpaved roads, winding through olive groves and farmland in the valley below the town of Montecastello di Vibio, Umbria. There was a mysterious red house at the very end of the road, with lovely gardens and fields of green all round.
