"Italian Stoop Sitters"

"Italian Stoop Sitters" 8x6" oil on canvas panel

Okay, yesterday I lied about that being my last post for the week. Against all odds, I was able to squeeze in one last painting late last night. This one is another DPW Challenge piece, so I am posting one last time before we leave for New Hampshire. 

The goal of this new challenge was to "select a portion of the picture above that interested me, crop it and play with the values and colors to determine what would result in a good composition." I can see several possibilities but here was my submission. I really liked the photograph which reminded me of many similar sights I saw in and around the Positano/Amafali coast and Sicily several years ago while on a Mediterranean cruise. I love this part of the world and had such fun painting this scene. I am thinking I will have to revisit my photos and paint from more of them. I hope you enjoy!

Thanks for viewing my work!

I am offering FREE shipping within the U.S. on all paintings in my Daily Paint Works and Etsy stores. These small paintings look great in groups of two or more, and add interest and charm to an entry, kitchen, bath, sitting on a bookshelf, or other small areas.
