The Retreat!

 Sketching under the portico at the lovely Locanda del Gallo

Sketching in the peace and quiet of the Umbrian hills.

 I'm crazy for you guys! What a great week!

 Practicing recording what we see

Immersed in the beauty of Italy, recording what makes our heart sing

 Splashing on the color!

Portable sketchbook kits; Windsor Newton Watercolor Paint Box, water container, indelible markers for detail, pencils and Moleskine Watercolour Notebooks...compact, perfect for capturing and recording our experience of Umbria!

 After painting? A fabulous lunch prepared by Chef Jimmy, of course!

Our incredible server George, Peace George!! We love you! 

What are we having for lunch? Oh, just a little something....


 Zucchini Flowers stuffed with Ricotta

Couscous with eggplant caponata...and fresh lettuces...and freshly made foccacia...and...Boun Appetito!!!

Every lunch and dinner at the Locanda del Gallo is a masterful combination of fresh, organically grown produce sumptuously prepared and luxuriously presented. This was only day one people!!

Next post, more fun at the Locanda. Ciao! Victoria
