Many of these works (the pen and washes) were done on the spot overseas. The oils were done back in my studio later on, using sketches and photos. ‘La Vigna’ is just a piece out of ‘Under the Tuscan Sun’ where you walk and soak up rural Anghiari life, and eat and drink outside in the evening. A truly magical experience. The island of Inis Mor is in the Isles of Aran group, just off Galway, south west of Ireland, and also a beautiful and historical place to explore. Hawaii had gorgeous flowers amongst other things, and San Francisco had this beautiful ‘Painted Lady’ which served as our hotel.
