Sunset over Italian Garden


Oil on Paper Laid Down on Board, 4" x 5" $85.00 eBay

This is an interpretation of the gardens of Tivoli,
done from an old photograph. I have actually done
several versions of this, in different sizes, all over black,
or, brown and white underpaintings. For instance, I did
one that had a brilliant red and yellow sunset, but I prefer
this blue-green, analagous color composition. The photograph
that I worked from was black and white, so I always have made
up the color, and it has always been a good exercise in color
harmony and using my color imagination.

I can see why you'd paint this scene over and over - it's just beautiful. And you handle the subject masterfully.
