Watercolour on 140lb watercolour paperOriginal 16″×10″Painted from a 30 year old photo I had taken during my studies in Italy. Honestly don’t remember the town. It just looked like it needed painting.
Love the way you broke the image down, jim. Gives your painting a wonderful atmosphere…like a blend between a Turner and a Cezanne.
That’s really a highly paid compliment, thanks very much.
great depth – and I love the subject – and the distant sun behind the hills is really well done
Thanks man, I really appreciate that.
glad you did paint it Jim – i especially like the sunlight glowing over the hills. A good subject to paint with all the different buildings painted in your unique watercolour style. Just perfect.
Thank you Linda, nice comment.
This is a really instructive painting for me Jim. I love your treatment of it, the juxtapositon of the soft light and the hard lines create a fascinating contrast…yet it is also very peaceful. I love it.
What a kind compliment Estelle, thank you very much.
I would say rather a Cézanne’s style !! One can recognizes the colors of the South (red roofs, cypresses & the sun), in conveying that very special atmosphere, you created such a good vision and feel in it…..
Corinne, your the second one to mention Cezanne, wow, to be compared like that is indeed a real compliment. Thank you very much.
Thank you very much Tony.
Ilike the loose style in this one Jim, and the atmosphere.
Thank you Brian, I appreciate that.
yes as others say Jim super painting .
I love the Tuscany paintings. There is something so peaceful and colorful about them. You did this one justice. Really a great painting. Love it!Deb
Thank you Deb, for a very kind comment.
I am very glad that you did paint it. Do you suppose it will have changed much, if you were to go back after 30 years and stand in the same spot? I hope not.
Oh Ginny, I want to get back there so badly. Of course I know things would be different. It was still in the 60’s when I was there last. I actually was allowed the climb the Tower of Pisa, which they don’t allow anymore, and actually touched the wall with my hand where the “Last Supper” is painted. I know you can’t even get anywhere near that close today. Yeah, I imagine a lot has changed. Hey, thanks for a great comment and for favoring it.
