Our apartment in Varnenna was in a great location and was on the flattest, most level part of the town. We also had an elevator to get us up to the third floor and were right by the ferry dock.
I found a spot along the lake promenade to sit and paint part of the town. This is 8 x 10 and was the only large painting I did there. After this one I worked in either my sketchbook or on smaller paper.
To get from the pathway along the lake up to the main road and main piazza you had to climb up these contradas which were narrow, steep, cobblestone steps (with little rounded cobblestones that made your ankles turn). It was not easy going up or down!
For my first day I focused on flatter land.
Don't you just love the colors of the buildings?
