Alassio, Italy ~ watercolor

I finished this watercolor over the weekend. It is from a photo my girlfriend sent to me on her cell phone while she was traveling in Italy last year.
I want to go to Italy!!

I thought it would be interesting to post the painting in stages- starting with the finished painting and working backwards to the sketch.
