On The Line



9 X 12 inch oil painting on canvas panel.
S O L D

Choosing a scene to paint here was very difficult. This small town called Radda in Italy had everything, scenic vistas, wonderful architecture and classic street scenes with tourists shopping. I was a bit overwhelmed so, I chose a quiet out of the way spot that had some colorful laundry hanging out to dry.

I like the shapes in this. I can't imagine painting with so much happening all around me. You did a marvelous job.

Don't you always wonder why we painters are so fascinated with laundry??

Nice job of subtle colors!

this is a good spot to paint, the angle of the sun/shadow and the geometric shapes happening throughout create rhythm.
