Gelato - square wm sml

Very inviting Andrea. The best ice cream in Florence is from Vivoli’s. Out of this world. Like the impasto effects.

Thank you so much Carole :-) Hmm... I wonder if that’s the same one we found (which we thought was the best in Florence :-0) The proprietor on the business card was Eleanora Innocenti (just the loveliest name ever ... so lovely I remember that and not the name of the actual shop itself!) Maybe a return visit is necessary.....

That looks so delicious! Wonderful textures

Yummy in every way!

Thank you for commenting Diana :-) yes, it really was rather hard not to eat my palette ... or lick the brushes clean at the end! (Do not try this at home!)

Thank you Heather :-) I can’t say painting this got my craving out of my system because I fancy an icecream more than ever now!! ... and it’s only breakfast time!

Good and tempting, Andrea!

Thank you Cesare :- ) I appear to have three, so you are very welcome to share - just to warn you that I’ve already ‘bagsed’ the Black Cherry one at the back though! Lol :- )

Thank you Jacky - I fancy one again now! :- )

Hang on Studio Wall

Who fancies icecream right now?? Or, even better, a quick (virtual) trip to Florence just for gelato? Oil on gessobord - this detail is 5 inches square. Buon appetito!
