Plein Air Painting and Photography Workshop with Niki Gulley and Scott Williams

The next day, some of our group left to go back to the states and a few stayed with us another week to be a part of our Cinque Terre / Lake Como Art Trek. For those staying on the second week, we had a leisurely morning at the villa to relax, swim in the pool, pack, etc. I had time to work on one last painting, a view that I had been admiring for the week from the back of our villa. I was attracted to this stone house with its window awning casting the diagonal shadows across its facade, nestled in between cypress, and the rolling countryside as a backdrop behind it.

That afternoon we headed to the airport to collect the rest of our group and drive to the Cinque Terre, five hill towns that are connected by a hiking trail on the west coast of Italy. After we checked into our hotel, we looked around Monterosso and grabbed a delicious seafood dinner that night.
