Umbria, Italy - Oil Painting

This is the first oil painting I've done in over 35 years. The subject are fields in Umbria, a region of Italy just east of Tuscany. The strange color of the soil is due to its volcanic origins. I painted it from a photograph that I took along the road.

I like the sky and the grey green yellow ground

Ah, so now I know where the color "umber" comes from. Beautiful painting!

Yes, this is Tuscany which I dearly love and have painted several pictures from both photos and imagination. You did well.....I get the feeling immediately of where you were. I'd like to see more of Italy!

I love this painting Martha. I never see any of your oil paintings..beautifully done. I love the sky as well.

It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see.
