It's fantastic to see how you create light with every single brush stroke, with your use of color creating light even in the shadows, Always graded washes in color and value......
thanks so much. it was a bit of a challenge as the place is so large, so grand and all white on white. but the shade areas got so much reflected light bouncing off the plaza - and the rest.... i just invented -))
Admiro tu trabajo, Thomas. Has culminado con éxito la pintura de este monumento, cuya grandiosidad impone; has conseguido que veamos su blancura. Mi enhorabuena.
Muchas gracias Antonio. "Blanc" es una de las más difíciles "colores" para pintar en acuarela, ya que es más - la mayor parte - simplemente no pintada en absoluto
It's really remarkable how you tackled this painting Tom. White on white is really challenging especially on a full sheet, but you proved again that you are the master. Congratulations.
oh thank you patty... mostly just an exercise in editing and restraint - not always my strongest qualities-))
Takes me back there Tom... what a great place eh? A great painting too but that goes without saying!
Thanks dear Jean - Yep- a pretty over-whelmingly grand space ... white on white in all that amazing Italian light
beautifully done! I live in Rome and see this almost every day riding close to it with my scooter. You really captured the mood and light very well! ciao!
You live in Rome? Oh, how I envy you that... Just about my favorite place on earth! Thanks so,much for the comment.
Fantastic piece Thomas, the reflected light and your economy of brushwork is a sure delight! Thanks for sharing it with us!
Thanks so much Steve for the kind and generous note! Thank you for stopping by! Tom.
