Dreaming of Tuscany
To continue working with the color and light lessons on Wet Canvas, I painted this view of Tuscany from a collection of various photos. I wanted to emphasize a pink glow and the bright light on those wonderful hilltop homes. I kept the suggestion of red poppies small (mere specks) since I wanted the eye to go to the houses and the mood undisturbed by the any flowers. In real life, the pink/purple glow and burnt sienna are more evident than I can see from this scan and my home screen.
No snow yet and the forecast for next week is uncertain just what kind of 'event' we'll have. My fingers are still crossed for another six inches ...! LOL
Hope your weekend is wonderful!
