Artist's description:

On a beautiful morning in the Marches, Italy, I could hardly wait to get to the village of Cesi just a few kilometres from my accommodation. I knew that these colourful, old houses were awaiting me, with the morning mist lifting off the mountains behind them. I had seen the scene before and made a point of going back there to capture the scene in watercolour.
It was late summer but there was still heat in that southern sun and so I took up position, standing on the edge of a field in the shade of a tree. First I sketched the subject to get the details right, then I painted in the mist on the mountains to catch it before it had completely dissipated. Next, I added the warm colours of the houses on the hill and finally, the foreground. I was engrossed in my work but, as the sun grew warmer, lizards in the nearby long grass livened up and started scurrying about. I had to ignore the sounds and concentrate to get the work finished- I was a bit worried they might run over my feet!
