View Full Version : "An Italian Summer's End"

Hi Everyone :wave: Here is My Latest Painting - "An Italian Summer's End" for my Colourful Travel Series. A beach scene 80 x 100 cm all in acrylics - from my imagination with a few of my ref pics. It has taken me over one month to complete the painting. I am very happy with the results! And just in time to hang-it up for Easter!

My husband and I loved our travels to Italy, particularly the LIGURIA coast side from Ventimiglia down to Livorno. This painting is in memory of our beautiful travels there and of course our fun-filled days at their beaches.
Would appreciate any comments you may have.

Have a great day everyone! :)

Another great painting Lisa. Your choice of colours are always vibrant and your subject always interesting. Which one are you, the black or the white cat? :D

Hi Lisa;
A really good painting and the more you look at it the better it is. It is a very clever painting you should be rightly proud of it well done.
