|"Old Farm by the Vineyard" cm 40x60 Oil on Canvas|
Wine is one of the main reasons why so many people travel to Tuscany every year, and our excellent wines are known and exported all over the world.
From my point of view, this translates into the fact that one of the most typical features of our landscape, which I love to paint, are the rows and rows of vines grown in several areas of the region.
This painting was inspired by a picture I took on a beautiful October afternoon, just as the vine leaves were turning yellow and orange. Right now the vineyards don't look just as attractive because growing season is hasn't started yet, so they are still bare...
This spot is near Montepulciano, one of the most characteristic and ancient walled towns in Tuscany.
