A memory-provoking pastel of the river that runs by the Watermill

The Watermill at Posara for painting, creative writing, knitting, and Italian language holidays/vacations/workshops, Tuscany, Italy.This vibrant pastel, of the River Rosaro that runs beside the Watermill, is by Anne-Marie Furze, a guest on Sue Ford’s painting course here this week. She painted the river last year, when attending Rebecca de Mendonca and Nel Whatmore’s pastel week. She tells me: It hangs on the wall of my sitting room and every time I look at it, I’m reminded of the great time we had at the Watermill.”

Anne-Marie obviously enjoyed herself so much that she has just returned (with two of her friends) for another painting week here.
