on their last night of the trip.
|Exploring Orta San Giulio|
|Snow in the mountains is a sure sign of Italy's approaching autumn. |
This is also the photo that I will be working with on this last painting.
|The sketch on canvas.|
|My palette and colors. Lots of different blues were mixed to start.|
|The dark colors were painted in first. |
The up close buildings get the darkest and warmest colors.
The mountains didn't get any.
|I'm painting very quickly here and missed taking a photo of the mountains painted in. The clouds were added next.|
|Now back to the roofs and building details. The middle ground is also started, to be put in|
|Done, well pretty much. The painting is full of wet paint and my time is up for a plein air painting.|
