This is an arch in the wall that surrounds the hilltop village of Cortona where I am lucky enough to get to teach a workshop every year. When I start to think about a logo for the year's workshop, I try to come up with a subject that represents Cortona and Italy to me. This year, I feel confident enough to take on painting the quintessential arch. I love those photos I see of beautiful Tuscan scenery seen thru the frame of an arch. So here is my humble attempt at a Tuscan arch. Maybe I will try again tomorrow, thinking maybe the buildings inside the city should be a cool color and the scenery outside of the arch might be bright, sunlit colors. What do you think?
