There are some places that we love much more than others and the region around Lake Como and Lake Maggiore in North Italy is definitely one of this for me. Six years ago I've painted this place for the first time --> Villa Balbianello - Lake Como

This is an experimental work with strong colors in wet-on-wet-technique. Half the day I've worked in my garden and enjoyed the  wonderful fall colors in the late sunshine. Maybe some of this influences this work.

Started a first version of this busy city view during the wonderful workshop with Joseph Zbukvic and EPC art courses pleinair at Girona. This is a 2nd version done at my studio and I'm really more satisfied with it. Hope you like it too. So much learned about picking the right object, composition, position of light and color choice. So all I need is time and practice to paint all the city views who I carry inside my head. 


I've found this wonderful film from ESCODA (world best brushes!!) created by Karen Jay Salvador  Septemer 2018 on YOUTUBE
