After an introductory tour of Monterosso old and new
We gathered on the beach for a demonstration from Alvaro.
Then it was our turn.
I promised I would share, warts and all. This is my first effort at painting Alvaro style. It takes quite a lot of effort to put aside what you know and want to do with a medium that you don’t really paint with very often. I had an amazing day. I learnt about Alvaro’s four important things, shape, colour, edges and oh no I forgot the fourth. I will have to ask again tomorrow. Finished the day with a couple of drinks with Zoe and my new friend Liz who stayed with me right to the end on the beach to finish another painting after everyone else had gone. We happily walked home contented after our days painting.
