Robyn and her binoculars!

I'd forgotten that, as well as sketching and posting postcards, I also receive them. So getting a beautiful  watercolour scene from Umbria, Italy was such a lovely surprise today. 

Now, we at Sketchercise know how much Robyn treasures her binoculars, but to use them to see a distant view which she thought I would enjoy, and, at the same time sketch that view is possibly even a first for Robyn! And I do love it - the hillside house, the patterns of fields and trees and the Umbrian greens at this time of year.




Thankyou Robyn for the effort you've made. I do appreciate it. Though, at the same time I have this lovely, quirky mental image of you holding binoculars in one hand and a paintbrush in the other busily sketching and its making me smile - as you always do!!

oh!!! I have that image of Robyn working in my head too. And yes, having seen many of Robyn's watercolours in real life too can also confirm that they are even more special when you can see them first hand

I love Robyn's continuing theme of a border that can never completely contain the entire panorama.

Beautiful,your painting take me back to my visit to Italy, a dream come true. The warmth of your colors, the scenery all say it perfectly.

I already look forward to get one of those charming, bright little landscapes of Tuscany!

Charlene, I have painted and posted my postcard from Provence and realised when I'd finished I'd broken the convention of the image breaking the frame. Trust you to see that! :)

I am jealous because I want to have seen you work, like Ronell. Next time I will be there too. This is a wonderful postcard of your area. This is where I see you doing your walks and maybe finding a farm side produce stand, does that happen where you are, or do you have to go to town?
