Fonte Nuova d'Ovile, Siena.

This was, I think, the first picture I made in Siena, Italy. I cycled from Florence - not a short ride - and into the hilltop city. My route to the city centre took me past the Fonte Nuova - that's the new fountain, of course, built as recently as the late 13th century by a pair of architects with the portentous names of Carmaino di Crescentino and Sozzo di Rustichino.

Of course I had to stop and get out the watercolours. I used the fountain's water for my brushes.
