Sunday was a gorgeous day under the Tuscan sun! Cool enough for a stylish scarf, warm and sunny enough to make the colors glow. After a brief talk about composition and thumbnail sketches, we settled into plein aire artist mode and got familiar with green shutters, grey stone and butter-colored buildings. We even picked up a few Italian fans!
Today (Monday) we head to upper Cortona to sketch and then wind our way down, back to the Piazza. Or should I say "roll" our way down? Patrick has presented us with daily and nightly Italian feasts at several of Cortona's lovely restaurants, each with its own specialty. Last night's specialty was Tiramisu. And you have NEVER had anything like this Tiramisu! Tonight we are treated to an Italian cooking class on a nearby farm. Mmmm!
