Wow Jim, have you changed your palette? It's the same Jim but different, warm and inviting, yes!

Love this but would rather see that the entrance into the church /house (?) not quite cut in half.

Also, the lower right entrance might be more shadowed either by entering in...or entering out.


OTT, the light, the shadows on the face of the bldg. are soooo very good!

Hi Jim,

I agree with the comments on the warm quality of the painting; it's very appealing.

Thanks, Joi and Angela! I appreciate your comments.

Thanks Mark! Nope, it is pretty much the same palette....except for the green. Of course Sap grn is my grn of choice, but I rarely use as much as I did in this one.

Thanks, Dana! Your comment made me go back and look at the door. I think that I may revisit that area...good point!


Thanks, Bobbi!

Thanks, Diane! Painted in two sessions....3 hrs the first and 15 min the second day. I needed time for everything to set up a bit for doing some glazing and scumbling.

Three Thank yous, Wayne for the three clappers!

And you too, SM for agreeing with Wayne!!!

Thank you, Artistanne and Julia! I was really trying to get that warm impact.

Thank you, Nicole! Glad you dropped in to look and comment!

Thanks again all. Jim

Absolutely lovely. I feel like I'm there...and it's both surreal, and real..like visiting some place in a dream.

I like everything about it except the small archway at lower right. It looks out of scale and I can't figure out the shadows

Lovely loose, soft brush strokes. The comination of the warm and cool tones make this a very inviting place. Saw many buildings like this on the train rides through Spain and Italy. Too bad I couldn't get off the train at points to take pics, then get back on. Next time.
