A striking watercolour from Watermill painting student Chris Franklin

Blog Frankline RiomaggioreProfessor Chris Franklin, on his second visit to the Watermill for a painting course, has just sent us a striking watercolour he began at the Cinque Terre village of Riomaggiore, which he visited during his painting week here. He’s just finshed it at home. Thank you for sharing this with us, Chris. I love the winding path that leads you into the picture. Chris is obviously inspired by the villages of the Cinque Terre. Last time he was here he painted another village there. Manarola:

You, too, can choose to visit the Cinque Terre during your pating week at The Watermill. On Wednesdays you have a choice of either going there or to the wonderful walled city of Lucca. Here’s a great watercolour of one of the squares there by one of our tutors, Charles Sluga:
