"Castiglione D'Orcia Church", plein air oil painting by Sharon Lynn Williams

"Castiglione D'Orcia Church", 9 x 12" plein air oil painting
$250 unframed, click here to purchase
 Please Note: The prices on the Tuscany plein air work is a limited time special -I am putting together a show of my Tuscany paintings and any that are unsold from my blog will be framed and hung at gallery prices. 

This is my first plein air painting that I had to spend two days on location on to get it the way I wanted. Luckily both days were sunny! The light changes so fast and I knew that I wanted to capture the early morning sun shinning on the church. I took a photo but needed to really observe all the colour changes from life, as they just didn't show up in the photo. I am very happy with the results and am glad that I took the time to do it from life.

You did a fabulous job of capturing the light - I feel as if I am there.

Thanks for the tip about Randel Tiptons work. I was not familiar with his painting. I found two of the thermal pools which are great. I am delighted and thank you again.
