San'ta Anna in Camprena, Tuscany, Italy

Pen and Wash

The moody film "The English Patient" was filmed at this monastery in Tuscany. We have visited and painted there several times. Once we stayed. An amazing meal was laid up for just three of us in the dining hall. A fire was lit. After dinner the meal providers went home and we were left alone to retire to our monks cells. The doors were low, the beds and the whole building creaky and a tad spooky as a storm passed by through the night.
