A trip to Rome



This week I took a trip to Rome to obtain references for my next exhibition in November, taking in as many sights as possible and collecting almost 250 photographs. Whilst there I managed to paint four plein air watercolours. The trip exceeded all my expectations and as given me much inspiration, which I desperately need.
What a wonderful place to visit.

Magnifico Trevor. You deserve to be very proud of these. They are all to your usual very high standard, naturally.

Be interested to see how your next paintings in this Rome series turn out.
