Later quick sketch of the same view. Late afternoon. Am I drinking wine while painting? Don't remember. Was trying to hurry for some reason though. My friend, Lisa, did a much better painting of the same view but she DOESN'T HAVE A BLOG!! (yet).
This is an early morning view of Montepulciano from our patio. It's the far hilltop. Only an hour and a half walk away. Foreground are some of the olive trees. I'm standing on the patio taking the shot while my espresso is percolating.
