The Margaria Farm

Title: "The Margaria Farm"

This is an ORIGINAL WATERCOLOR , not a print,
painted on 140 lbs 300gsm ARCHES cold pressed and acid freeWatercolor paper .
To paint it I used Winsor & Newton Artist's colors.

The size of the paint is of 12 1/4 x 5 1/4 inches.
This paint has a white border all around, this allows a better framing of it.


This is the "Margaria Farm" located not far from my home here in Italy. It lyes in a wonderful hill's zone, all around it's surrounded by vineyards.

Today it hosts a restaurant and there you can buy biologic vegetables and fruit, but ince upon a time it was the house of the typical farmers, composed of many families living all together.
