Italy, Hillside of Flowers

Title: Italy Hillside of Flowers
Size: 20 x 24
Medium: Oil on gallery wrapped canvas

This composition developed slowly with a rough sketch in blues and greens. Soft greys and lavenders in the background help the painting have perspective. I finished all the base deeper colors and when dry I carefully added brighter reds and oranges with a palette knife for added texture in the foreground.
Radiating with optimism, the vibrant palette and serene composition of this landscape was inspired by my recent trip to Italy. Hope you enjoy it!
