So typical of small Tuscan villages, the laundry drying on the line was something I just had to try to capture in watercolor when I returned home.

    This is something that you do not see too often these days. I like how you did the light and shadows in this water colour.

    I love this, I don’t know why but I just love the look of clothes out to dry, probably cuz it reminds me of my mother lol Very nice work, I like the shadows and the colors

    Thanks for your kind comments, Sharon and RL! I loved painting this subject and hope to do other paintings with clothes on the line. I also love that hanging clothes on the line saves electricity and is, therefore, a practical green idea.

    I love this painting too, the everyday-ness of the subject serves to emphasizes your beautiful treatment of it with the fabulous colours and play of light and shadow. I aspire to paint like this one day!

    Thanks, Estelle! This was fun to paint — pure fun! It was just a small section of one of the many photos I took during my only visit to Tuscany a couple of years ago.
