Scenes like this are common in Italian towns. Charm everywhere you look. I was attracted to the great light and the angle of it hitting the window. I was really out of my comfort zone when I was painting this but that is a good thing. You never learn if you don't stretch yourself.
I painted this on an 8 x 10" linen canvas.
I have SO enjoyed your paintings...... always and especially as of late. My husband and I are planning our trip to Italy as we speak (or post) and your paintings make me feel like I'm already there!ReplyDelete
Beautiful work.....as always!
If that's how you paint when you're out of your comfort zone - WOW! Love the warmth, the pops of red/orange - love the ironwork - I just LOVE it!ReplyDelete
Carol, I cannot imagine anything that you paint would be "out of your comfort zone"! The light and shadows in this painting just glow!ReplyDelete
The title of this painting is as UNDERSTATED as your ability to paint anything you want and well. Really love this one. Gorgeous light and shadow but you simplified and made it all about the light. Then you keep us looking to see such wonderful temperatures and little treasures hidden. A favorite!!!ReplyDelete
I like the texture of the house and the shutter slats. Just enough information. You did a beautiful job on a deceptively complicated subject.ReplyDelete
I love what you did with this. It blasted off of the thumbnail blogroll like a shot. Fabulous composition and sense of light.ReplyDelete
Lovely painting! The glow of light and the division of shadow and light is beautiful!ReplyDelete
I really like this, Carol! So much warmth emanating from a painting! You've done a beautiful job and I just want to see inside this home now!ReplyDelete
Yes you are right. It really is nice light and you captured it well.ReplyDelete
Such a great color palette with incredible light and shadowsReplyDelete
Beautiful light and texture.ReplyDelete
Love the loose way you handled all the little pots. The pots in shadow are my favorite aspect.ReplyDelete
This painting has great harmony.ReplyDelete
Love your recent work Carol, gorgeous warm palette and skillful paint handling!ReplyDelete
