Vernazza, Italy


















Memories of a wonderful holiday in northern Italy last spring.
I'm testing out a new painting method inspired by Janice Ykema's (www.janiceykema.blogspot.com) paint-ink-then wash method. Thanks Janice!

I like the grainy look. Are the dark spots part of the inking?

Hi Ammon,

Yes, the ink has soaked into all the areas that weren't painted, including the small depressions formed by the rough texture of the cold press paper I used.
