Cusco, Peru. This is the oldest continuously inhabited city on the continent. If you ever visit, you will know why people have lived here so long, it is really special. The altitude makes the light really beautiful, and we are close enough to the equator that it is pleasantly cold, but not freezing. Plein air painting is delightful!
Sacred Valley, Peru
The way the light hit the deep valley nestled between the Andes was impressive. I finally grabbed a bit of Internet to post. I LOVE the colors here, a painters dream come true. I have made dozens of color notes and sketches, those who follow my blog will enjoy a nice long trip to South America.
“Do anything, but let it produce joy.”
Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass
I love the light this time of year, especially as it falls in streaks and highlights grass heads in the morning light.
