Hi YLCIA,

I think that it is mostly done. IMHO it needs some pigment on skies to create more depth and uneven touch for stone texture on buildings and pavement here and there.

Overall painting is good, but i have some doubts about proportions.

it has relaxed somewhat.
still nice - will probably appeal widely now if not before as well.

no
you finished it out of a meticulous habit,
and I think you intended to go this far always.
I was just saying it was very interesting earlier too.
now the tree has a detectible candy twist, everything is more groomed.

Jerry, thank You for attention, I really appreciate it.:)
I always want the painting to be loose and always end up tightening the"shoe laces" ....:rolleyes:

Maybe one of this days;)

Let me start by saying I love the foliage in the background. There was something about this painting that just doesn't seem to work and I think it's perspective. I added these vanishing points to the image to show what I mean.

I think you have a wonderful painting to add to your memories of your trip to Italy.
I too understand trying to be loose but some how tightening the shoelaces as you put it. I would love to paint impressionistically. I start that way but then get bogged down in trying to straighten everything up. Guess that's why I like my charcoals so much. I can have strick definition in my drawings.
