This is beautiful Jane. It's reminding me that I took a whole load of photographs in Rome specifically for painting references - and I haven't got to them yet. You've inspired me to get back to them. Thank you.

Light and colours of this watercolour have the ancient charm of the place.
Your beautiful painting from imagination, transports the reality on other planes, making poetry.

Amazing effect of ancient building done with few almost monochrome brush strokes. Great.

The best use of watercolor: the blending of the colors and the light!!
