After a week at Monopli on Italy's southeast coast, we set-up camp at a waterfront hotel in Salerno on the Mediterranean side (west), just south of the fabled Amalfi coast. Two boat trips to both Positano and Amalfi netted two paintings via plein air and hundreds of reference photos and sketches for future work.

The piece here is a nearly finished painting done at Positano, looking straight-up from the beach in front of the duomo. Summer arrived in full swing at 38 degree centigrade which was darned hot, but added some warm tones to the painting as well.

Hi I can hear the bells from the duomo at Positano dancing in the light and off the tile roofs! I love the yellow hues you are using on the arches.......... Delightful to read and see your exquisite work!
