Villa Lante

Here is a new watercolor of the plan and section of Villa Lante in Bagnaia, which I visited today!  The painting is very small, at 5.5" x 8.5".  It took 1.5 hours to draw (freehand) and paint.


  1. A great, quick study. Looks like a beautiful Villa.

  2. Nice study, an excellent use of 1.5 hours!
