Villa Relais

Villa Relais is a lovely family run small resort in the Tuscany Region of Italy. My sister and I spent a few days there when touring Italy in 2012. What a beautiful place, I will be returning there one day. "Villa Relais" is 10.5" x 13.5" done with oil pastels on acid free paper. I executed this artpiece using a sgraffito technique. Practiced in Italy since the 1730’s, sgraffito is an old and beautiful “subtractive” method of creating images by scraping away a surface of medium in patterns and shapes to expose underlying layer(s) of color.

Price: $200 with artwork matted to 16x10", plus shipping and taxes.
