In this latest film Joseph travels to “la bella Roma” and shows us the importance of planning your painting, concentrating on the fundamentals of selecting a subject and composition. He suggests that we avoid the obvious and emphasises the value of observation and drawing. He then uses these ideas to produce pencil drawings and watercolours of various corners of Rome—a market, along the river Tiber, a quiet street and outside the Pantheon. He finishes the film by painting a large studio watercolour of the Piazza del Populo that we see him sketch in situ.
"Painting begins with the decision of what to paint. If that's wrong, the rest is a waste of time."
