tuscan colours 2

Not only burnt sienna, burnt umber, terracotta and all other shades of brown. Tuscans paint their homes using a palette of soft colours, drawn from the landscape.

Nice shots, Betty! It almost makes you wonder if the Tuscans invented the pastel palette.

Getting so excited, I'll be there in September to sample the browns for myself, burnt or otherwise. Lovely photos.
