Courtyard in Cuzco by Marsha Elliott

This was painted from a photo taken while visiting Peru in 2007.

Yarka St. Petersburg paint on Arches 140# coldpress.

    I agree with Ercan, absolutely beautiful work Marsha! The symmetry and composition is perfect! Also love the colours. xx

  • Thanks, Maree. A painting from a photo is so much easier when the photo is well composed in the first place….at least for me it is.

    Beautiful painting Marsha! I love how you played the color of the distant brickwork against the foreground brickwork! Very nice composition, contrast, and palette selection!

  • What a great comment! I’m really happy with the results of this one. There’s a couple things I might’ve liked to see different, but in the overall scheme of things, it’s not a big deal. Thanks, Ken!

    Oh Marsha, this is a stunner! I love the light in the foreground. Beautifully painted.

  • Thanks so much, Fran. I was glad I was able to capture the light as that’s what drew me to this particular image.
