Original Painting by Joanne Short. A Little Place in Italy. Dolceacqua, Liguria Italy. 12 x 12 inches oil on canvas

Joanne is a master of capturing the patterns and shapes of the landscape and in this painting the distant hills are described with simple but effective brush strokes and careful colour choices to bring the full majesty of the Italian countryside to life. Poppies and wild grasses feature with Olive trees and a view to Dolceacqua in Liguria, Italy.

A very personal painting for Joanne as it was painted at her good friends 'Orto' in Italy during her recent residency on the Côte d'Azur. Joanne lived for three years in the South of France in Menton and this canvas was painted in the Italian hills just over the border. The small patch of land is a paradise of olive trees, wild flowers, vegetables & an open kitchen which was used for cooking.
