When we lived in Italy, we took a drive along the Amalfi Coast and stopped in Positano where I took the photo I used as a reference for this painting. The wisteria was in bloom everywhere we walked.

Sylvia, you did such a good job on this from the drawing to the painting. The boat in the water and the wisteria add so much to the overall composition. Would love to go there for lunch!

I can see you are leaning toward a new palette, similar to the gate a little while ago. I quite like it, gives it a very warm and sunny feeling. Lovely painting, I'd love to sit there next to the huge window and have an espresso .

Well drawn & painted Sylvia. The Bar Rosticceria looks like a nice place to be!

Just one thing I might alter and that is to make the wisteria 'trunk' or stems less obvious. Perhaps a few more wisteria blooms masking them? I find the two stems rather too dominant.
