October, 2011 – Puglia, Italy

I just returned from a fourteen day painting trip in the Puglia region of Italy with the renowned Barry Coombs and a group of sixteen other accomplished painters from Ontario and Alberta.

Puglia is white ….. and I mean white!  It quarries the world’s finest and oldest marble, granite and limestone.  As such, the architecture is predominately white [especially after the sun’s bleach and the applied milk wash] with subtle shades of ochre, sienna and umber.  [Those who aren’t artists try to sound like artists!]

My supply of ‘titanium white’ was soon exhausted but, luckily, the local Alberobello art store had four tubes for me to buy!
