European Cafe, Watercolor Painting by Jenny Armitage

Snapshot Cafe (watercolor 14 x 23) $600

 

Despite the lack of canals and only a single bicycle, this is Amsterdam on a summer evening. But it could be anyone of a number of European street scenes.

The title is a bit of a pun.  I painted the picture from a series of snapshots, and girls in the foreground are sharing a snapshot.  I hope the atmospheric nature of the painting has little to do with snapshots.

Three Laccan Towers, Watercolor Painting by Jenny Armitage

"Three Luccan Towers" (17 x 19 watercolor) $500

Another Italian painting, this time of Lucca.  The view is from a window in yet a fourth tower.  I will have to paint the tower we climbed.  The oak trees growing from it’s roof give it a surreal feel.

Late Afternoon Florence, Painting by Jenny Armitage

Late Afternoon Florence (13 x 22 watercolor) $600

Florence is worth visiting just to walk the streets.   The twisting turning little alleys are endlessly fascinating.  The light pours through in dramatic shafts between the buildings spotlighting slivers of streets and buildings.

Changing in Milan

Milano Centrale, Watercolor Painting By Jenny Armitage

Changing in Milan (14 x 21 watercolor) $600

In our month long odyssey to Europe last year we had only one really long travel day, but it was a dozy.  We left London in morning  to take the train to Paris.  We boarded the train without a hitch and ate lunch as we emerged from the channel tunnel in France.  We walked the streets and had dinner in Paris. Then we boarded the night train Milan.

I’ve heard mixed reviews of the night train, but it did well for us.  Our cabin mate was a gorgeous young Frenchmen who man managed to be both chivalrous and bashful at the same time.   The cabin was spacious and the bunks comfortable. We agreed to an early bedtime and all fell asleep easily.  Which is surprising because the trip was tinged with worry because  Italy was scheduled for a railway strike, and we intended to go on from Milan to Rome.

So it was with some relief that we arrived in Milan in the wee hours to discover our connection to Rome was still on the board.  Relief and time to enjoy the beauty of the modern railway station with the morning sun lighting up the tracks’ exit to the greater world.
