I do not know what to title it as so I picked this.
Anyway, I saw this picture on a ref. photo in google and thought I would paint it. I liked the light and shadow in it.
You C & C is welcome!
thanks

Very nice, Diane, I was just looking through my old pics of Italy and France and thinking how photogenic it all is - You've inspired me to maybe paint one of the old photos some time soon

It sounds fun to approach painting as a sort of tourism activity. Painting a place in order to imagine being there.

Hey ArtofAndydanny (lol) I like to do the traveling this way as it's the only way I can afford it! hahahaha. But, I admire your abstract stuff. Doing the patterns is really hard for me. I found several pictures that I really liked. Series????
Dreamz, I love doing the light and shadow stuff. It's hard to find good ref. pics with it.
Thanks to you guys: Val and Ginger.
