PAINTING IN TUSCANY – SIENA
The walled city of Siena lies on three sienna-colored hills in the center of Tuscany. Planted solidly back in the Middle Ages, this show place of Italian Gothic preserves its original character perhaps more strikingly than any other city in Italy.
If you’re a fan of painting architecture, Siena will fill your cup to over flowing. At each turn of the city’s undulating streets you will find a paint-worthy scene. And don’t forget the streets themselves, which are all brick-paved, and that imitate the dominant building material of brick at it’s very warmest and most subtly toned. Stairways lead to more stairways and arches frame spectacular views. In fact, it was in one such charming backstreet that I found the inspiration for the above painting.
