Chiesa di san Vittore, Pollenza

Heading south of Piemonte for the town of Acqui Terme, the tower of this church in Pollenza caught my eye from the road. Turning off I snapped some photos then couldn't resist trying to capture this arch.
It's still cold in the region, so I sketched in the car. Left is the initial ink sketch, then right is me painting on my lap.
I was on my way to visit my friend Diana of Baur B&B. She runs a beautiful boutique B&B with her husband, near Acqui Terme. The views are stunning as are the fabulous rooms. Check out their website, and I would thoroughly recommend staying with them to explore the area. 
What's more, Diana creates fabulous ceramics, so check out her online shop here.
