Some things you have no control over, last week I had figured out a lovely quiet painting spot in the village of Carzano a short ferry ride from Sulzano. We arrived set up camp and sketched away quite happily, the sun was shinning, the shadows on the buildings were all were we wanted them to be there was even a pretty tap for water. Then the rain came and we had to abandon ship. But with sketches all completed and angles correct we ventured back the following morning again with beautiful blue skies swallows dipping and the shadows still in the right place, turning the corner into the pretty square we were confronted by this blocking our view!!
