Watercolour of swimming pool at Cuculo
Art in Tuscany

Painting Villas in Tuscany

We often receive postcards or notes from our customers to thank us for finding their holiday villa. This summer we had a particularly delightful card from some clients who had stayed at Cuculo, a large villa for 8 south of Siena. Liam Thompson, a painter and tutor had been staying there with his family and painted this beautiful watercolour of the swimming pool at the villa. They made a card of it and sent us one in the post.

It’s a wonderful card and a wonderful painting. It’s also a pleasure for me as I really like Cuculo but it doesn’t come across in the photos. I’ve been meaning to go and sketch it myself for a while – Liam has beaten me to it and done a far better job. You can feel the heat in the stones, and the atmosphere of relaxed summer days stretching out. 

To see more of his work have a look here: Liam Thompson Art

Lastly, to see some of our brochure covers through the years, with my sketches, have a look here: Invitation to Tuscany Brochures through the years.

Thank you Liam for your wonderful card.
