Sunny Italy (Watercolour)

Fabulous - really like how you've painted the people

Heather - thank you. Once you get into detail with figures they can be difficult. I’m not very good at them but find the trick is to paint them small enough to create the illusion but not large enough to show how bad the figures are! 😊

Agree with Heather. Just enough detail to make your painting interesting. Love the sunniness it portrays ichael.

Sorry, ‘Michael’.

Pleased you like it Carole. Would like to be sitting there right now with a Peroni in hand ...... perchance to dream!

Perfect impression of the people Michael, yes, for me a nice little glass of chilled white.

Superb Michael and all so relaxed

I love Italy and your painting transports me right back there. Lovely.

So pleased the painting gives you some pleasure Marjorie, Dennis and Christine. A chilled white sounds even better than a Peroni Marjorie 😊

Caught that sunny Italian feel here Michael.

Superb painting of sunlight, colour and atmosphere Michael. Very clever work on the figures also.

Thank you Stephen & Tessa

Good idea Michael a bit of sunshine is always welcome at this time of year especially when it’s beautiful painted scene like this.

Thank you Barry!

Thank you Romila. I see you have painted a view of my ‘home’ river - the Wye - very good!
